Our Upcoming Events

“The Artist’s Way, A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity,” by Julia Cameron is a 12-week “course in discovering and recovering your creative self.” Each week a chapter that begiins with “Recovering…” Cameron has tools to help us tap into our “higher” self, “God” or the “god/dess within.”

In collaboration with Lovelace Embrace, PWH is thrilled to host Yoga and Guided Relaxation, every Tuesday from 5:00-6:30pm. These free yoga classes are designed specifically for patients who have been diagnosed and treated for cancer. 

This is a wonderful group of Warriors, from all ages and stages, coming together to support one another through the journey of breast cancer.

Please join PWH in welcoming Judy Gallegos, healer and reiki master, who will share her time and talents with a special sound bath experience, using her wide variety of singing bowls. This event can be attended virtually or in-person, at Pink Warrior House. The virtual Zoom link can be found below

Please join us at Pink Warrior House for a dance party, hosted by fellow Warrior Rebecca! From Rebecca, “Rediscover the joy of dance in a safe and supportive environment. I will lead us in a short warm up and then you will be on your own to dance how you would like. This is for all ages. Family, friends, partners, and support people are all welcome.”

Come join us for a morning of fabulous skincare and brunch! We will be hosted by Alicia who is the owner of Aesthetics by Alicia, and a licensed aesthetician. Her mission is to empower clients through enhancing their natural beauty. “Self-care is extremely important, especially in the fast-paced society we live in today.” Aesthetics by Alicia specializes in results-based Esthetics, while providing a positive and memorable experience. As Alicia says…”treat yourself today. You deserve it.”

We are excited to welcome back Lauren Neuburger to share her time and knowledge with us for another installment of our monthly Lecture/Q&A Series. Lauren was diagnosed with breast cancer when she was 26 years old and this diagnosis was the catalyst for change for the rest of her life. She turned her pain into purpose and left a career in finance and became a holistic nutritionist and master coach that specializes in breast cancer.

This is a wonderful group of Warriors, from all ages and stages, coming together to support one another through the journey of breast cancer.

Come join us for a fun filled evening of pampering and learning! Our host Leandra Baca, owner of Hidden Treasure Salon and cancer survivor, will teach us how to address the changes that occur to our skin and faces during and after cancer treatment. 

Many of you have asked how you can help and support this beautiful community by volunteering your time and talents, and share more time together, with one another. So, for the upcoming year, we will be adding Volunteer Days. Once a month we will host a volunteer opportunity at Pink Warrior House, with a different project. Some options may include assembling Warrior Bags and Beautiful Warrior Bags, handwriting cards for our new Warriors. Learning to become Battle Buddies, helping prepare for upcoming events, and more!

Pink Warrior House, Lovelace Embrace and the Young Survival Coalition co-host this monthly gathering. e hope you can join us, as this is a chance to meet others who have been through similar diagnosis, treatment and life changes.

For this installment of our monthly (virtual) Lecture/Q&A Series, we will be welcoming Jessica Arent with Balanced Physical Therapy and Wellness.

 Please join us for our monthly (virtual) Meditation, Guided Imagery and Breath Work Group. It is a wonderful experience, facilitated by Dr. Barbara May-Valencia, psychologist and breast cancer survivor. We will also begin each group with focused breath work prior to meditation, teaching techniques that may then be used whenever they are needed.

About Pink Warrior House Foundation

Our Team

From our President and Founder, Allison Hendricks-Smith:  

“I am a postpartum breast cancer survivor and was saddened during the duration of my years-long treatment journey to realize that we were under-served by meaningful breast cancer specific supports for those battling this difficult disease within our community.  While our medical treatment options are quite strong, they don’t always address the mental, emotional, and social needs that arise during the journey for the patient and their caregiver(s).  Pink Warrior House was born out of a vision to provide a centralized community of support for our breast cancer Warriors and their caregivers. We believe that we can, and should, be better about supporting those going through this difficult fight!”  

We currently have a eight-member Board of Directors who have strong ties to the Breast Cancer community.  

Allison has been serving in  non-profit leadership roles within our community for more than 17 years. She is a licensed mental health counselor, a dedicated and compassionate leader and a proven community organizer. She may be reached at [email protected] or at 505.577.5264

Leadership, Planning, and Community Engagement

We currently have an eight-member Board of Directors who have strong ties to the Breast Cancer community here in Bernalillo County.  Some of whom are breast cancer survivors and caregivers. We have and continue to connect with survivors to get their thoughts and ideas on what would help or would have helped during their treatment journeys. We also work with oncologists, nurses, nurse navigators, and other medical practitioners to attain their inputs and suggestions as well.  

 

Our History

We were incorporated in January of 2019, and received our 501(C)3 that May. Since that time we have built and continue to grow our robust programming, expanded our membership community by hundreds, established a strong board of directors, partnered with local businesses, and recruited many loyal and dedicated volunteers and practitioners, and establishing our beautiful home on the grounds of Albuquerque’s historic Painted Lady B&B. It has been a busy few years, and we are proud of our growth and commitment to the local breast cancer community.
