P.INK DAY: THE HEALING POWER OF ART
Breast Cancer Awareness month is a time to remember friends and family who battled breast cancer and support both the human spirit and the body that takes a toll on health, endurance and hope.
Through P.ink, an organization forever changing the options for finding healing in the midst of breast cancer recovery, survivors now have an option of turning to tattoos to cover the scar with a beautiful piece of artwork.
In 2013, Noel Franus founded P.Ink, which stands for “personal ink,” an organization that helps breast cancer survivors who have undergone mastectomies and breast reconstruction by connecting them with a specialized tattoo artist.
To connect with P.Ink and become a donors, artist or organization partner, email P.Ink at firstname.lastname@example.org. According to Franus,” there’s a lot more demand than there is supply. So we encourage donations online: http://p-ink.org/give. And for survivors wishing to sign up as a potential beneficiary, visit: http://p-ink.org/signup.”
You can also connect with them at p-ink.org and Pinterest - http://pinterest.com/personalink, to view the ever growing collections of P.ink Day images, tattoo ideas and artists with mastectomy experience and with the community of survivors at https://www.facebook.com/personalink.
