Spring Blooms Hope for Breast Cancer Patients and Survivors as UBCF’s Pink Bag Event Returns

HUNTINGTON STATION, N.Y., March 11, 2024 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — United Breast Cancer Foundation (UBCF) is excited to announce the highly anticipated return of its Spring Pink Bag Event to its Huntington Station headquarters. Taking place from Saturday, March 23rd to Wednesday, March 27th, 2024, this individualized, free “shopping” event promises to fill hearts and Pink Bags with a touch of spring cheer for breast cancer patients and survivors.

Attendees will have the opportunity to choose from a diverse selection of quality gifts, including comfy clothes and shoes, pampering makeup and personal care products, household goods to spruce up living spaces, cozy bedding for restful sleep, and even toys and children’s items to share with little ones.

Research indicates that receiving unexpected gifts can have a significant uplifting impact, triggering the release of feel-good hormones like dopamine, oxytocin, and serotonin. These hormones can foster feelings of happiness, gratitude, and self-worth which can be especially beneficial for individuals facing challenges such as breast cancer.

This year in the United States, there will be approximately 310,720 new diagnoses of invasive breast cancer in women. Long Island, specifically Nassau and Suffolk counties, has garnered attention for potentially higher incidence of breast cancer rates than the national average. In the state of New York alone, an estimated 19,160 new cases of breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in 2024. UBCF is committed to supporting individuals facing this challenge, and the Spring Pink Bag Event aims to alleviate some burdens and bring joy and comfort to individuals facing breast cancer.

Embrace the spirit of renewal and rejuvenation by joining UBCF for this year’s Spring Pink Bag Event from Saturday, March 23rd to Wednesday, March 27th, 2024. UBCF provides a unique opportunity for those affected by breast cancer to receive a bagful of goodies and a day filled with comfort, support, and empowerment. While residents anywhere in the US can apply, please note that due to availability and limitations, the event is by appointment only for approved applicants who can pick up items in person. Items cannot be shipped or stored.
