This Saturday night, March 28th at 6 p.m. the nonprofit TurningPoint Breast Cancer Rehabilitation will host their annual Pink Affair, and it will be on a virtual basis.

TurningPoint is a breast cancer organization in metro Atlanta, helping breast cancer patients of all backgrounds feel better faster, resume activities enjoyed prior to their breast cancer diagnosis, treatments, and surgeries and ultimately, leading them on a path to become cancer free. 

More than 4,500 patients have been seen since TurningPoint opened in 2003. All proceeds support from this virtual fundraiser will benefit TurningPoint's financial assistance program. Click Here to learn more and support this special cause.

A message from TurningPoint's Executive Director 

Marilyn Pink, PT, Ph.D., MBA

"We are all deeply affected by the coronavirus pandemic. For our patients going through breast cancer, the challenge to health, family and finances is daunting. We are especially concerned about many of our patients who have recently been diagnosed with breast cancer, have had surgery or are going through chemotherapy and radiation. TurningPoint is open and here for them and will continue to be. We are also developing innovative technologies to serve patients in the safety of their home. Our financial challenge in these difficult times is great and we need your help more than ever to continue to support our patients and their families.

Because of the crisis, TurningPoint has been forced to recast our most vital fundraiser - The Pink Affair - into a fun, virtual event. Patients will continue to be diagnosed with breast cancer and will need the critical rehabilitation services we offer. We anticipate an increase in the number of patients needing financial assistance to access the specialized care TurningPoint provides. Unfortunately, without your support we will not be able to offer the level of care provided for over 17 years. We need you now more than ever! 

Please share this with your friends and family! I hope you and your friends and family from near and far will join us on Saturday, March 28th for our LIVE AUCTION EVENT!"
