Where The Money Goes

Money raised by Tickled Pink will provide vital funds to support patient programs and assist with funding the $78 million in breast cancer research that the American Cancer Society funds annually. In addition to research, the American Cancer Society helps nearly 1 million people touched by cancer each year get the help they need, when and where they need it. ACS helps patients and their families with their most pressing needs: getting rides to life-saving treatment, navigating the health care system, and dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery.


American Cancer Society has funded $5 billion in cancer research since 1946


Free transportation through Road To Recovery transportation grants for the neediest patients in 2021


Active cancer research grants across Texas
