The Pink Ribbon
Society, which is based in Northwest Indiana, is aimed toward helping women and men who are currently battling with breast cancer, according to the Northwest Indiana Times.
"I'm now a 34-year breast cancer survivor and for many years I kept trying to think of what I could do for women who had breast cancer," Ann Peters, the creator the society, told the news source.
The organization offers services and products that individuals need while they are going through treatment including blankets while receiving chemotherapy and lawn care or food services while they are home. The society's biggest event is their annual tea, which drew 700 people, who donated for the hope of positive breast cancer health news, the media outlet reports.
According to the American Cancer Society, one in eight women in the U.S. will eventually be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point during their lifetime. It is the second cancer related cause of fatality among women, but the death rate has decreased since 1990. There are currently 2.5 million breast cancer survivors in the U.S. today.
