Pink Lemonade Project
Founded in 2010 by Drs. Allen and Cassie Gabriel, Pink Lemonade Project (501c3) was created to provide critical support to breast cancer survivors who struggled with the many emotional and psychological aspects of breast cancer diagnosis and recovery. Within the breast cancer community itself, Allen and Cassie noticed a dangerous lack of information, such as when someone should get a mammogram (with or without a history of breast cancer), as well as the rights and options available for restoration after a mastectomy or lumpectomy.
Initially providing a retreat for 14 brave women, Pink Lemonade Project expanded in 2011 with the offering of singles and couples retreats. Today, we are able to improve the lives of many through three valuable programs: Revive Retreats which offer a healing three day escape for both survivors, survivors and their partners, and women living with metastatic breast cancer, Pink Link, offering one-on-one mentorship and group support, and our support groups, facilitated by oncology social workers and designed to give women cancer survivors an opportunity to talk with others who are facing similar challenges in a safe, welcoming environment.
