The mission of Twisted Pink is to provide hope and connection to people living with metastatic breast cancer by funding bold breakthroughs in research and awareness of the disease. We are a 501(c)3 charitable organization based in Louisville, KY with Fed Tax ID 47-1140389.
Twisted Pink was established in 2014 after our founder, Caroline Johnson, completed her own treatment for stage III ER+ breast cancer. Her passion for funding research was driven partially by learning more about the statistics of the disease during her own journey along with the misunderstanding about breast cancer survival rates and early detection.
Since our inception in 2014, Twisted Pink has raised over a million dollars to fund Stage IV research. These are much needed research dollars that have the potential to extend or save lives for people living with metastatic breast cancer. Our collaborations and advocacy for matching dollars has resulted in over $1.82 million dollars to support metastatic breast cancer research. This success and the research we have funded wouldn’t be possible without our volunteers, board members, patient advocacy groups, generous donors and our corporate sponsors.
