One of our employees at WSA, Lisa Knight, volunteers with The Pretty In Pink Foundation and explains how it has positively impacted her life:
“I started working with Wilmington Surgical Associates about two years ago in the insurance department and working with breast cancer patients on the financial aspect was something new to me. I feel cancer patients have enough to worry about. They need to focus positive energy on getting well. As I did my research I came across The Pretty in Pink Foundation. I called Joy Wade, who is the Regional Program Manager in Wilmington, NC. Within days she was over to our office filling my ears with so much information. Pretty in Pink provides so much for the breast cancer community. They offer financial support for patients that need assistance and they also have a program called “All beyond the ribbon support” which includes wigs, hats, exercise classes, makeup and so much more. And it’s FREE! My Daughter and I volunteered with them during the Wilm Expo. We walked around pinning ribbons on everyone and spreading the word. I also was able to spend some time with our patients out of the office, which is always nice. I could not have found a better way to spend time with my daughter and at the same time teach her how to give back to society by helping others. Lindsey and I are looking forward to the upcoming events.” -Lisa Knight
