THE PINK ROCKERS WHO CARE PAGE Copyright 2014
We are dedicated.
Our Mission is simple.
The Pink Rock raises money to financially assist people who are challenged with Breast Cancer.
All funds raised directly fuel The Fund for the Uninsured and the Underserved at The Fortunato Breast Center at Mather Hospital.
Our Mission is to positively effect as many people as possible..
You see, I will never forget the feeling of being told "You Have Invasive Cell Carcinoma"
I didn't even know what that meant.
And little did I know how my life was about to change......FOREVER.
As a small business owner, and living alone- I didn't even know the cracks I was about to fall through.
Unable to work through operation after operation....
I was impacted on so many fronts....
Personally - As a woman
Professionally - Losing business
Financially - As I tried to sustain my home, and then the bills started coming in, and coming in, and coming in.
The uncertainty of my health, my body, my professional life, my home.
I needed to buckle in.
At my fifth year of survivorship, I felt strong enough to step out and make sure no one felt that alone and uncertain.
Thanks to the belief, confidence and vision of my co-founder Walter Hurney, together-
The Pink Rock Was Born.
TODAY- THE PINK ROCK HAS RAISED OVER A HALF MILLION DOLLARS AND HAS HELPED MORE THAN 280 PEOPLE.(2017)
We are a charity that helps those in the fight for their lives.
It's Not an Event....... It's A Mission.
