The Pink Train Foundation was founded in December 2014 and will therefore be celebrating its sixth birthday just before Christmas. The main aim of the Foundation is to provide support for women in Latvia suffering from breast cancer, covering the costs of individual counselling following diagnosis and during treatment or after treatment has ended, as well as physiotherapy following operations related to this disease. Since its creation the Foundation has helped over 700 women during this difficult period in their lives and the number of women helped increases every year.
The Foundation currently offers to cover the costs of up to 8 counselling sessions with a psychologist or psychotherapist for each breast cancer patient turning to the Foundation for support and these sessions can be used as needed with no time limit. Regarding physiotherapy, the Foundation covers the costs of up to 10 consultations or exercise sessions with a physiotherapist. In Latvia there are often long waiting lists for state provided physiotherapy and the Pink Train Foundation aims to provide this service as soon as is needed following operations. The aim is to help women retain their physical and emotional balance as much as possible during this time and many women whom the Foundation has helped continue to exercise and be active afterwards.
In 2019 the Foundation decided to also start raising awareness about this topic and as a result the #pupkultūra (#boobculture) movement was born. Their latest campaign recently received GOLD at the BalticBest 2020 awards, but campaigns also cost money and require financial support.
The Foundation's only income is through donations and all donations big or small will be greatly appreciated so that it can continue its missions of support and awareness.
