MISSION:
PinkSari Inc., is a charitable effort to promote a dialogue for global breast cancer prevention, especially in South Asia and among South Asian-Americans.

PinkSari, Inc., is an independent non-profit organization (FEIN: 27-5479480; 501(c)(3) status pending) founded and incorporated in Massachusetts in March 2011. Our global projects are dedicated towards raising awareness, improving our understanding of risk factors, catalyzing breast cancer prevention, early detection strategies, and access to treatment focusing on women in South Asia.

OUR CHALLENGE:

To prevent breast cancer in South Asia, we need to raise awareness regarding the association of physical inactivity and obesity with increasing breast cancer risk. In addition, further resources are needed to increase access to breast cancer screening and treatment in South Asia.

1) To develop online educational resource on breast cancer prevention in South Asia
2) To raise awareness in the US and in South Asia on the global burden of breast cancer and breast cancer prevention strategies

3) To raise awareness for breast cancer prevention in India
      a.    To provide free mammograms for women on World Breast Cancer Day in October 2011 in Surat, India
