All of our lives have been touched, interrupted or devastated by breast cancer in one way or another. We all have a mother, sister, friend or co-worker who has been impacted by this pervasive disease.
About the Living Pink Pageant
The pageant is a celebration of life. It was born from the desire to honor and pamper those individuals that have fought and survived breast cancer. Contestants of the pageant must either be currently battling or be a survivor of breast cancer. Last year we raised over $15,000, for the Breast Cancer Resource Center (BCRC), but with their closure; we are looking forward to doubling that goal for our new partner the Linked by Pink.
We have had the honor of seeing first hand, the positive impact this event has had on the lives of its participants. Many of the participants are fortunate enough to have wonderful support from their family and friends, but the ones that don’t blossom in ways you can’t imagine, during the preparation and the pageant process. It’s not about vanity or competition, it’s about regaining a feeling of wholeness and personal identity that is lost during the clinical process of chemo therapy, clinic visits; of doctors prodding and poking you; needles and bags of foreign fluids, and large cold machines.

About Cancer Caring Center (PA)
The mission of the Cancer Caring Center is to help cancer survivors, their families and concerned friends cope effectively with the emotional impact of cancer through a variety of FREE support services.
-There is no right or wrong way to cope with the emotional aspects of cancer, we will offer a wide variety of services to help patients and families cope.
-Everyone has the inner resources to cope effectively with cancer. Our primary task is to help him/her discover and use those resources.
-You can move forward after a diagnosis of cancer and you do not have to confront cancer alone.
-A person with cancer is a “survivor” not a victim.
-It is important to acknowledge and work through all emotions experienced after being diagnosed with cancer; i.e. fear, anger, anxiety, grief, etc., in order to move forward and it is “OK” to experience these feelings.
-A cancer survivor – no matter what stage of the disease he/she is in – has the human right to be part of their health care team.
-The cancer survivor also has the right to choose the degree of privacy or communication that he/she wants or needs.
-Cancer affects the entire family. It is essential that family and friends acknowledge and attend to their feelings and needs while offering positive emotional support to the person with cancer.
-Children of cancer survivors have feelings and needs that must be addressed.
-We believe all services should be provided free of charge.
About LeCher Productions
LeCher Productions has been in creation for approximately two years with the goal of strengthening their local community through fundraising for qualified not for profits. They have raised funds for the Diabetes Association, Aids Housing Association of Tacoma, Stand Up for Kids, Phoebe House and the Breast Cancer Resource Center. LeCher’s total goal last year was to raise $10,000 for all their charities together, so they were very excited to raise well over that just for the BCRC.
