Pink House Update: Gradual Opening by Appointment
An Update on Reopening
As Charlotte starts to ease some of the commercial and social restrictions in place because of the Covid-19 pandemic, we want to keep you informed about operations at the Pink House.
Because women and men living with breast cancer have compromised immune systems as a result of their diagnosis, treatment and/or ongoing medication, Carolina Breast Friends continues to exercise an abundance of caution in our plans for the eventual reopening of the Pink House.
For the time being, we will continue to deliver our programs virtually and via video (see below). We will also continue to match recently diagnosed Survivors with mentors for support via phone, Facetime or Zoom. In fact, our phone lines have remained open since the onset of the pandemic, and staff remain on duty remotely.
In addition to the above, we are phasing in specific 1:1 services on an appointment basis. If a breast cancer Survivor is seeking in-person support or needs a wig or prosthesis, simply call the Pink House at 704-370-7773 to make an appointment. Staff will begin working limited on-site hours in order to facilitate those needs. We have increased the cleaning and disinfecting routines at the Pink House and will be disinfecting high-touch surfaces between visits. Masks are also available on site for visitors to use.
Carolina Breast Friends' leadership is in regular communication with other wellness-related nonprofits as well as Levine Cancer Institute and Novant Health, and we are continually assessing developments with the health crisis, CDC recommendations, and the state's guidelines. We will proceed with gradually reopening our in-house services with the utmost caution and care for the women and men we serve.
What Does this Mean for you?
As always, stay safe and be well.
