Flushing, MI (PRWEB) September 20, 2013
The specialty coffee roasters, Coffee Beanery, are excited to announce the creation of four limited time only coffees in support of The Pink Fund®, an organization that provides short-term financial aid to people during active treatment of breast cancer – enabling them to heal and recover.
“With an alarming 1 in 8 women being diagnosed with breast cancer, we wanted to partner with an organization that provides real help for patients”, said Coffee Beanery founder, JoAnne Shaw.
A donation of $1 to The Pink Fund® is included in every pound of cake flavored coffee sold in stores and online. Coffee Beanery will match this $1 donation during the month of October. Flavors include delectable choices such as Strawberry Cheesecake, Red Velvet Cupcake, Black Forest Cake and Birthday Cake.
“The Pink Fund® goes beyond research and gives financial help to those struggling with this terrible disease and gives them the peace of mind that their bills will be paid for while they focus on getting well. With our cake flavored coffees, we invite you to drink your cake and help us in the fight against breast cancer,” says Shaw.
Coffee can be purchased at one of their locations or online at http://www.coffeebeanery.com.
About The Pink Fund
While fighting for their lives, many breast cancer patients in active treatment lose their livelihoods. Unable to work, patients often face catastrophic financial losses. The Pink Fund®, founded in 2006 by breast cancer survivor, Molly MacDonald, who experienced this herself, provides individuals in active treatment with up to 90 days of financial assistance to cover non-medical expenses, such as health insurance premiums, housing, transportation and utilities. The Pink Fund® helps to meet basic needs and decrease stress levels, helping breast cancer patients strengthen their fight to improve survivorship outcomes and quality of life.
