Soon after CBF began, so did the vision of creating the Pink House, a unique respite center for breast cancer survivors. The Pink House became a passionate and altruistic cause and today, with the dream a reality, the excitement continues.

Inspired by CBF Founder Kristy Adams-Ebel, this vision became the passion of more than 2000 Charlotte breast cancer survivors.

At every stage of the journey-- from diagnosis, surgery, chemotherapy and radiation treatments, living with metastasis, remission; or the fear of recurrence -- women who have walked the same path are available to provide support, encouragement, information, and assistance.

The Pink House is a sanctuary for the hopeful transition to treatment and cure.  As a one-of-a-kind, "one-stop shop," the Pink House serves breast cancer survivors in numerous ways:
