Working Together: Pink Aid and the Adelphi Breast Cancer Program

Pink Aid, a breast cancer fund-raising organization, is a big supporter of the Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Program, located at the Adelphi University School of Social Work. Not only has Pink Aid, which is based in Long Island and Connecticut, provided grants but recently members of Pink Aid made a Creative Cup to benefit the Adelphi Program.

Creative Cups is an initiative of the Adelphi Breast Cancer Program where people take ordinary bras and turn them into works of art. These embellished bras will be auctioned at a special event at Adelphi University in Garden City on March 16, 2017. The Pink Aid bra is called “Compassion Until There’s a Cure,” reflecting the philosophy of Pink Aid, whose mission is to help underserved local woman survive breast cancer treatment with support and dignity.

The bra was created through the efforts of Pink Aid supporters Cathy Collins, Eileen Kathryn Boyd and Beth Haridopolos (of Eileen Kathryn Boyd Interiors), as well as Pink Aid Long Island Advisory Council Members, Diana Mitchnick, Michele Pincus and Chris Mitchell and Mitchells of Huntington.

Pink Aid’s grants to the Adelphi Breast Cancer Program provide psychosocial support and counseling services as well as patient navigation and concrete services to under-served minority women dealing with a breast cancer diagnosis.

Pink Aid’s annual Luncheon and Fashion Show at Mitchells in Huntington will be held on Wednesday, October 19.
