PROGRAMS

Pink Helping Hand Program

The United Colors of Pink (UCP) is an organization devoted to helping others. Our volunteer-based non-profit organizes fundraisers to collect money from donors in order to distribute these means among people affected by breast cancer. UCP, per its Bylaws, pledges to distribute funds annually to people in need after carefully reviewing each case.  

  • To be considered for the Pink Giving Hand Assistance proof from a doctor about active treatment is required.

  • UCP holds the right to verify the validity of each petition,  such as requesting the original MD or therapist's note in accordance with the guidelines within HIPAA rules.

  • UCP will share its funds with petitioners on a first-come-first-serve basis. 

  • Funds will be given only until they are exhausted on the day of petitioning to no less than $5000 of UCP savings. This amount will be reviewed annually or adjusted based on UCP's current operating needs. This amount always needs to remain in the UCP account. 

Mammograms

Mammograms are a powerful tool in detecting breast cancer early, potentially saving lives. At United Colors of Pink, we're committed to ensuring access to this vital screening. Through our partnership with Bright Light Medical Imaging, we provide mammograms and other diagnostic services (up to $150) to those in need - whether you're low-income, uninsured, or underinsured.

House Cleaning

For cancer patients, keeping a clean home is an important step in helping to stop the spread of viruses since their immune system is suppressed due to the various medical procedures they are undergoing. Also, it helps them to maintain a sense of control during an uncertain time.

    physical, mental, and emotional well-being. When cancer makes life at home difficult, our
    network of residential cleaners and volunteers support are here to support you or your loved
    ones battling cancer. Click here to apply. Patients receive two free home cleanings.
