Pink Lemonade Project
Founded 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. Even within the breast cancer community itself, Allen and Cassie saw there was a noticeable lack of information regarding the age 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, PLP expanded in 2011 with the offering of single and couple retreats. Today, they continue to host a range of healing retreats and, as well, promote breast restoration and the Pink Link, a developing peer to peer support program.
