Breast cancer survivors share stories of hope over Thanksgiving meal

LINCOLN, Neb. — Dozens of women affected by breast cancer were able to relax and enjoy a nice Thanksgiving meal Sunday.

The event was part of the second annual Project Pink’d “Care to Share.” Project Pink’d cares for women who’ve been diagnosed with breast cancer.

The women were served a Thanksgiving meal, played some games and heard from survivors.

The Vice President of the organization – whose wife is also a survivor and the founder of Project Pink’d – said Sunday’s event is their favorite.

“To help people understand that it is not the end, to get those kinds of diagnosis, that you can continue to live and thrive and enjoy life, it just means the world to me to be able to help people like so many people have helped us," said David Sturgeon, the VP of Project Pink’d.

The women also received a frozen meal to take home for Thanksgiving so they don’t have to worry about preparing one.
