Pink Lemonade Project received a $245,500 grant, the largest grant the organization has ever seen, from the Cowlitz Tribal Foundation Clark County Fund.

“Organizations like the Pink Lemonade Project play a vital role in supporting all individuals and families with a full circle of care following a life-changing breast cancer diagnosis. We are grateful for their community-focused approach to health, and we are excited to be their partner in this three-year project,” said Luke J. Bridges, Cowlitz Tribal Foundation Clark County Fund Chairman, in a press release.

The money from the grant will help expand staffing and implement a HIPAA software to support a 60 percent increase in people affected by breast cancer in the Northwest, according to the release.

“This growing partnership will allow us to provide hope, programs and services which will improve quality of lives and survivorship for more people here in our communities,” said Susan Stearns, chief executive officer at the Pink Lemonade Project.
