Care

Robyn Knapp of Shellrock hugs Gabbi DeWitt from the Beyond Pink TEAM, after telling her story of how the Beyond Pink Fund helped her from getting behind in her house payments after her breast cancer diagnosis.

The Beyond Pink TEAM cares about our community. We care about how you are coping with your breast cancer diagnosis, and we care that you are accessing screening, and not feeling burdened by the cost of cancer. We want to help if we can.

 

The Beyond Pink TEAM is committed to helping women access services in our community. We have partnered with the Iowa Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (Care for Yourself), to bring free and reduced cost screenings to women in need. Certain eligibility requirements must be met. For more information about the program click here or contact Gabbi DeWitt at 319-292-2225.

 

The Beyond Pink Fund is another way the Beyond Pink TEAM has committed to serving women and men in our community. The Beyond Pink Fund is money that has been donated by our community to help care for women and men facing breast cancer or have needs for screening and treatment that can’t be met in other ways.

 

The Beyond Pink Fund is designed to help with the practical expenses of dealing with breast cancer. We can help with gas money, groceries, utility and housing costs. We also have provided grants for medical expenses, compression sleeves, wigs, etc. An application must be submitted to be approved for a grant from the Beyond Pink Fund. If you need assistance and want more information contact the Beyond Pink TEAM or fill out an application for assistance.
