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!”
Our Board of Directors have strong ties to the Breast Cancer community.
Allison has been serving in non-profit leadership roles within our community for more than 20 years. She is a licensed mental health counselor, a dedicated and compassionate leader and a proven community organizer. She may be reached at email@example.com or at 505.577.5264
The Pink Warrior House Foundation is a registered 501(C)3 tax exempt organization. We are so grateful for monetary and in-kind donations that allow us to both continue and expand our program services, purchase materials (for Warrior Bags, new wigs, prosthesis, bras, art supplies, etc.), recruit practitioners and volunteers, and to continue heightening awareness about our services throughout the community. We would very much appreciate your generous support! Please click on the “donate now” link above to make a one-time or monthly tax-deductible contribution.
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.
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.
