Pink Pearl Canada is a community-oriented charitable organization that provides support, facilitates connections and empowers young women who are courageously overcoming the social and emotional challenges of being diagnosed with cancer.
Our programs offer a connected community of peer support for young women between 18 and 40 years facing cancer of any type through our suite of programming and online discussions. Our program development process takes into account the needs, feelings and concerns of its young female program participants.

What People Are Saying
"The overnight retreat gave me an opportunity to share stories & experiences with women who were going through something similar. It was such a great feeling to open up & chat with other young women—people who just ‘get it’. I created friendships that I know will last longer than my cancer journey. "
