Pink and Black Education and Support Network: There Is Life

Share With Love!



The Pink and Black Education and Support Network was launched by the Boston Public Health Commission in October 2017. The Network leverages the successful work of the Pink and Black Ambassadors, a group of Black female breast cancer survivors who collaborated with the Boston Public Health Commission in 2005 to increase awareness of breast cancer among Black women. The name of the 2005 group drew from the key message in Boston’s breast cancer awareness campaign at the time – “Pink isn’t the only color associated with breast cancer.” Today’s Network is open to all female breast cancer survivors. The Network makes female breast cancer survivors aware of local resources that are available to improve quality of life in survivorship, and identifies activities on the local breast cancer landscape in which the Network can be involved in service to others.
