Project Give Good

Seymour Pink recognized in Starbucks’s Project Give Good Throughout December, Starbucks is giving out $1 Million in Starbucks gift cards. Unexpected acts, large or small, can be so meaningful that even years later, they’ll be warmly remembered. “The inspiration behind Project Give Good is simple, we want to brighten the holidays and delight our customers,” said Kris Engskov, executive vice president of U.S. Retail for Starbucks. “The holidays are here and good is in the air. We hope Project Give Good will continue all the good in our communities and keep it going and growing, because good is contagious and giving is too.” Seymour Pink was nominated by Cassandra Dessureau-O’Hara, the manager of Starbucks of Seymour. “I believe this organization deserves the recognition because there are far too many men and women getting the breast cancer diagnosis and during their time of need, Seymour Pink is there to bring them a little light in the face of terrible darkness.”  Cassandra presented Mary Deming, Seymour Pink founder and President with 25 gift cards worth $20 each. In 2017, Seymour Pink has donated $25,000 to Smilow Cancer Center to helping women currently receiving chemotherapy to use the Scalp Cooling Modality minimizing hair loss. They have approved 110 applications for financial assistance to people undergoing treatment, so that they can focus on their fight and not their bills. The 6th Annual Pounding the Pavement for Pink 5k drew an astonishing 2600 participants and raised over $100,000 for their mission. Seymour Pink was given the honor in 2017 of being a charity partner at the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington, DC. This was...

Holiday Greeting

As we celebrate this holiday season, I, on behalf of the Officers and Board of Directors of Seymour Pink, want to take this special time to say thank you for all the support you have given to us in the fight against breast cancer. Through your unending support we have been able to financially assist over 110 breast cancer patients and their families this year. In addition, we were able to make a$25,000 donation to  Smilow Cancer Center helping women currently receiving chemotherapy to use the Scalp Cooling Modality minimizing hair loss!  And at Thanksgiving, those families that we had helped this year to date received a $100 gift card to help them enjoy their Thanksgiving holiday. Additionally we will be sending each of these patients a “Christmas” present too! All of the financial assistance and emotional support that we have been able to give these families this year is the result of you saying YES to the fight. You have brought HOPE and STRENGTH and COURAGE to so many people struggling with breast cancer! So to all, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! God bless, Mary Deming Founder/President Seymour Pink,...

post 6th Annual 5K thoughts

How do you describe, in words, what yesterday was all about? For the last six years I have failed to find the right words to capture the sights, sounds and the emotions of the 5K. I think in the end it’s because words can’t define our 5K event. You can only FEEL yesterday! Our 5K has grown incredibly in the last six years not just in number of participants, but in the amount of support and hope and love this community has for those of our loved ones and friends who have heard those words, “You have breast cancer!” For me personally, there were so many moments that I felt my own mother, who lost her fight to metastatic breast cancer in 1972 at the age of 55, right by my side. I can only believe that that was true for so many people yesterday. For our breast cancer survivors, our HEROES, who came to participate despite the fact that some were in active treatment, YOU INSPIRE US! Nothing deters you! If anything you were more determined to show breast cancer that it was not in charge of your life. We had 128 breast cancer survivors with us yesterday. So many came up to me to share what yesterday meant to them. One woman said, “This is the best medicine for me to beat my breast cancer! I know I can fight this and win because I see so many people here supporting me in the fight!” For each of us the 5K means something different BUT one thing is the SAME…We FIGHT together and we WIN together! Please...
