Our Mission

Supporting the everyday needs of local women on the journey through breast cancer and recovery.

 Pawsitively 4 Pink is a nonprofit organization that provides financial assistance for low-income, underserved women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer in Massachusetts, with a focus on Worcester County.

Founded in 2018, Pawsitively 4 Pink aims to alleviate the financial obstacles that women face on their journey back to health and healing. We are the only organization that continues to help these women up to 6 months after treatment has ended.

Many patients with this diagnosis are forced to stop living a normal life, instead, their lives are complicated by chemotherapy, surgery, radiotherapy, and CAT scans. This new world can be filled with anxiety, depression, and fear, compounded by the inability to meet one’s own human needs.

It is our mission to financially support as many low-income women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer, whether they choose traditional or holistic treatment.

Through partnerships and your donations, we provide indirect financial assistance grants for underserved local women with breast cancer that cover expenses such as rent, utilities, childcare, or various other out-of-pocket costs that can be paid directly by the organization.

At Pawsitively 4 Pink, we’re also dog people and we know the meaningful impact dogs have in our lives. They make us laugh, they comfort us when we’re feeling blue, and they keep us engaged with the world. Our experience with the dogs we love is enough to prove that they’re good for our health. Understanding this, Pawsitively 4 Pink knew that we had to include our furry friends in our endeavor. So, Pawsitively 4 Pink helps a woman adopt, and train a local shelter dog as an emotional support dog. Having a dog to look after, feed, exercise, and love helps cancer patients divert their focus away from illness and onto something over which they have some control. For cancer patients, time spent with dogs can have an incredible, lasting impact.
