Providing Practical Help and Support to Breast Cancer Patients and their Families 
Pretty 'n' Pink Support Fund 
Cancer can place huge finaincial strains upon patients and their families, and everyday practicalities that we may take for granted when we are healthy can be more difficult for those going through cancer.  
 
Since Pretty 'n' Pink was founded, the charity has been supporting breast cancer patients and their families across Northern Ireland in a financial capacity through small grants dispersed from the Pretty 'n' Pink Support Fund. 
 
In the past Pretty 'n' Pink funds have been used in an number of ways such as: 
Help with travel costs to and from hospital appointments 
Help to purchase post-surgery underwear / swimwear 
Help with home heating and / or utility bills 
Respite breaks 
Help toward mortgage payments or rent arrears. 
 
Many other families have benefitted from respite breaks, cookery courses, funds for a social evening, and help out of financial difficulty.  
 
As a charity we have the freedom to be creative with the money raised and we can help patients in the best way we can. We have the ability to create memories and happy times, and to take a patient's mind of their diagnosis even if it is only for a few hours. We do our best to help and assist breast cancer patients throughout Northern Ireland. If you need help and support please get in contact with us now, please click here for details.

Group Outings 
 
Pretty 'n' Pink also funds social events such as large group outings to 'Legally Blonde the Musical' and 'Dirty Dancing the Musical' at The Grand Opera House, including a pre-theatre meal and an after-show party. For patients undergoing treatment at the time it is a chance to escape cancer, for others at the end of treatment it may be a night of celebration. For many it is an opportunity to spend quality time and an enjoyable night out with someone close to them. The evening also provides an avenue by which to build support networks and friendships among ladies outside the hospital environment.  
 
"Rare night out together for myself and my sister. Cancer affects the whole family and it was nice to share a fab night with her". 
 
"A great night out, and an opportunity to meet everyone in a very relaxed fashion"
