This one-day conference is a one-of-a-kind event that focuses on what it means to be a woman and a cancer survivor. This event promises to offer a memorable and incredible experience for all of our participants!
Today, we encourage you to use this time to recharge. As integral parts of our family, innovators in the workplace, and caregivers to so many, we invite you to relax; mind, body and spirit. Throughout the day, enjoy engaging in workshops that will challenge conventional ways of treatment, encourage self-love and promote wellness. Take the time to stop and reflect – challenge yourself to be present and in the moment.
The Pink Ribbon Place was established in 2009 to bridge the gap of support for those who have been impacted by breast cancer through direct services such as diagnostic services, wigs, hats, bras, scarves, support groups for the English and Spanish speaking populations, and survivor mentorship.
While we have maintained our focus on breast cancer over the years, our center has also continued to evolve by expanding our services to women and their families who have been impacted by cancer - regardless of area of diagnosis.
Today, we continue to offer no cost services in both English and Spanish.
To improve the quality of life for individuals and families impacted by cancer.
Our resource center was designed to be warm and inviting for those who seek services from us. We provide services and products at absolutely no cost including:
HEADWEAR • WIGS • CANCER CARE & WELLNESS EDUCATION • BREAST PROSTHESIS • COUNSELING • EXERCISE • SUPPORT
A cancer diagnosis does not stop, even during a pandemic. In response to the growing needs of our community, we transitioned many of our regularly offered, in-person services to virtual platforms to ensure that clients' can receive the support they need from the comfort and safety of their own homes, including our cancer care and wellness presentations, exercise programs, counseling services and support groups. VIEW OUR SCHEDULE HERE.
We also began shipping support products such as head wear, hand sanitizer, soft-fill prosthesis, grocery assistance and masks directly to our clients' homes.
Finally, we are bringing you the fifth annual SoCal Women's Cancer Conference online -- with 4 amazing live sessions in English and Spanish and informative on-demand content!
