Day Kimball Healthcare Awarded $4,000 Grant by Pink Aid for Breast Cancer Patients

July 28, 2020

Day Kimball Healthcare (DKH) was recently awarded a $4,000 grant from Pink Aid, a charitable organization that helps to fund breast cancer support services for women in need, for the period of March 1, 2020 through February 28, 2021.

The grant will help underserved women gain access to support services through DKH’s Homemakers division including access to long and short term home care and personal care, as well as transportation for patients’ needs. Pink Aid’s grants to Day Kimball Healthcare have totaled $19,000 since 2014, which has helped approximately 26 women obtain breast cancer support services.

“We are incredibly grateful to Pink Aid for their continued support of our programs,” said Michelle Donahue, BSN, RN, OCN, hematology-oncology manager, Day Kimball Healthcare. “Connecticut has one of the highest rates of breast cancer and Pink Aid’s support is critical in allowing us to provide access to health care services for local women facing the challenges of this disease.”

Pink Aid’s mission is to help underserved local women survive breast cancer treatment with support and dignity, to provide screening to women in financial need, and to empower breast cancer survivors to heal by helping and inspiring others. Pink Aid grants are awarded to recipient whose goals best advance Pink Aid’s mission.
