A unique wig resource created by Dianne Austin, a cancer survivor and thriver, and her sister Pamela Shaddock. We understand the challenges that come with wearing natural hair, especially in the face of medical hair loss. Our mission is to provide high-quality synthetic wigs that cater to the unique needs of women of color with highly textured, tightly coiled hair and every range in between.
Family Reach is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that provides non-medical financial support to families facing cancer. Treatment requires more than medicine — families need a roof over their heads and food on their tables to survive. If a family can’t meet these basic needs, cancer treatment takes a back seat. We work with patients, providers, and community organizations to challenge the systems that force families to choose between their health and their home. Together, we’re making financial treatment a standard of cancer care.

The Network leverages the successful work of the Pink and Black Ambassadors, a group of Black female breast cancer survivors who came together to collaborate with the Boston Public Health Commission in 2005 to increase awareness of breast cancer among Black women. The name of the 2005 group drew from the key message in Boston’s breast cancer awareness campaign at the time – “Pink isn’t the only color associated with breast cancer.” The Network is open to all female breast cancer survivors.
