NothingPink understands there are a lot of questions and decisions upon receiving genetic testing results or a cancer diagnosis. There are many different programs available including our local peer support, care package, financial support and our BRCA Navigator page.

Peer Support Program

Our local peer support program provides you with information and support whether you are at high risk, BRCA+, or currently have breast or ovarian cancer. We have women who have been through some tough times and just want to be there for you. NothingPink understands there are a lot of questions and decisions upon receiving genetic testing results or a cancer diagnosis. We also understand having someone here locally can make a huge difference. Talking with a peer who is going to local doctors and undergoing local treatments reminds us that we are “real people” going through a “real thing”. Support meetings are currently held monthly in Fort Mill, SC and Charlotte, NC.  Fill out our Support Form to find out more information about dates and locations. 

Care Package Program
Our care packages have been carefully curated by women who have recently had breast surgery, and include everything a woman needs post-surgery. If you or someone you know within the Carolinas is facing an upcoming breast surgery (preventative or post diagnosis), please complete the Support Form.

My results were as I expected – I have the BRCA 2 mutation. I just had a feeling I did. As I took the next steps of screening with MRI’s, mammograms, ultrasounds, and a biopsy of an irregular spot I knew I wanted to move forward with a preventative double mastectomy. The thought of frequent doctor visits with screenings, and hoping to catch cancer ‘early’ was a stressful and fearful existence. I want to avoid treatment, chemo, radiation, ‘sickness’; if I could get ahead of the pink world I want to do that and not put my family through all the struggles I faced as a young child. ~ Carrie
