about Kentucky Pink Connection
To provide support by reducing and/or eliminating barriers to screening, diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer.
Who We Are
The Kentucky Pink Connection program serves breast cancer patients on a personal basis by reducing and/or eliminating barriers to screening, diagnosis, and treatment. This common-sense approach that was launched by Dr. Harold P. Freeman, a cancer surgeon in the Harlem community for over 40 years has had the remarkable effect of increasing retention, diagnostic and treatment resolution rates.
Typical barriers that our patient navigator might address include child care needs, transportation issues, lack of financial resources, insurance difficulties, wigs and mastectomy supplies.
We strive to educate women about the importance of having their mammograms. The Kentucky Pink Connection program can link women without insurance to resources that provide low-cost mammograms.
Navigation is an invaluable service to individuals and their communities and makes sure each person is, indeed, cared for in a humane, dignified manner.
