The idea of Positively Pink originated with Maria McMullen sharing her desire to form a charity for women with breast cancer during a summer lacrosse tournament in July of 2017 with a few friends. Maria, a breast cancer survivor, discussed her vision of making care packages for women undergoing mastectomy. These care packages would consist of items of comfort and practicality that Maria herself was given and found so helpful when she was recovering from the same surgery. Maria had a strong desire to "give back" after receiving so much support during her own treatment of breast cancer. With the support of Eileen Davenport and Lisa Flynn, a commitment was made to bring this idea to fruition. In the months that followed the friends discussed and shared ideas and along with another close friend, Denise Garcia, Positively Pink was formed!
Each package contains about $100 worth of soothing and practical items mastectomy patients would appreciate. Maria has hand-picked pieces that have helped make her recovery into her positive purpose.
