The Pink Lotus Foundation Helps Save Lives:

Not everyone can afford the care that is needed to find breast cancer or treat it after it is found. But by enabling low-income and underprivileged women to receive free care to screen for, diagnose, and treat breast related illnesses, the Pink Lotus Foundation is literally saving lives. Each and every year millions of dollars are been invested by nonprofit and for-profit organizations just to try and find the cure to breast cancer. The Pink Lotus Foundation supports every single one of these very critical efforts. However, it is unclear if or even when a cure for breast cancer will ever be found.

Helpless women without insurance or sufficient coverage face lack of care, delayed care, uncertainty, and sadly, death from breast cancer on a daily basis. Women. Dying. Just because they can’t afford to go and get checked! The Pink Lotus Foundation simply does not want this to happen anymore so they provide free care to screen for, diagnose, and treat breast related illnesses.

Recently, the foundation’s founder, Andy Funk, completed the most unique breast cancer charity fundraiser I have ever heard of. Being an Ironman triathlete, he rode his bike 365 miles nonstop, alone, unsupported and unassisted from Los Angeles to Las Vegas, through the grueling desert, to support the foundation’s cause and raise funds so that low income, uninsured and underserved women can get the help they need. Watch the video below to witness Andy’s  incredible charitable accomplishment.

    Adequate testing and preventive care is so important.

  4. Tamra Phelps says:

    I think this is a great idea! It is heartbreaking to think that there are sick people out there unable to obtain available treatment simply because they can’t afford it.

    What a great Foundation.
    So many women can not afford the cost of Breast Cancer screening and early detection is the key to successful treatment.

    Sounds like a great foundation. Early detection is SOOOOO important

    This is such a great foundation. It’s awful to think that women in america are dying from breast cancer just because they can’t afford treatment! How terrible!

    I need to check into this foundation – our insurance doesn’t cover mammograms fully – they are $1000 around here after insurance has paid!

  20. This foundation sounds amazing! :]

  21. Cynthia R says:

    Excellent idea. Even with insurance, families have trouble making ends meet between the deductible, co pays, time off, travel time, etc… And most hospitals have become companies, buying up smaller practices and charging whatever they want. Doctor’s appointment in Siler City NC used to cost $55, now with UNC-CH hospitals buying them out, the same 20 minute visit costs $150! It’s a nightmare!

  22. That is a great foundation. Wonderful that they help women who really need it.
