World of Pink Foundation is a health facility dedicated to providing comprehensive aftercare for women who have undergone all phases of breast surgery, including mastectomies, lumpectomies, reduction, and augmentation.
Founded in 2016 by board certified mastectomy fitter Christine A. Guarino, RDH, CMF, CFm, World of Pink's mission is to restore confidence in women following breast surgery. World of Pink Foundation provides beautiful, comfortable pocketed bras that are supportive and help in healing, as well as top-quality breast prostheses that match a patient's skin tone and lifestyle. Best of all,
World of Pink Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to providing women who are under or uninsured with necessary aftercare resources, including bras, prostheses, and lymphedema garments at no charge. Donations to World of Pink Foundation will help women during the crucial healing period following breast cancer by ensuring they can feel balanced, supported, and confident once again... because no woman should feel like a stranger in her own skin.
Through fundraising events and generous donations from the community, World of Pink has already changed the lives of thousands of women on Long Island in its first two years, and will not stop until each and every woman has the aftercare she needs and deserves.
We at World of Pink Foundation have made it our mission to provide women with the opportunity to regain their confidence, breast symmetry, and positive body image. Through the use of breast prostheses and beautiful supportive bras, we are helping women one fitting at at time.
It is common for some women to lose confidence following lumpectomy, mastectomy, or other breast procedures. For many, breast reconstruction may be out of reach or undesired, but that doesn't mean that asymmetrical breasts are a permanent tribulation. Prostheses can act like a bridge for more permanent solutions during any reconstructive process. We proudly offer prostheses in a spectrum of shades to match your skin tone.
At World of Pink, we work tirelessly to change breast aftercare for women everywhere. We also proudly team up with local organizations such as the American Cancer Society and the Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund to support those who are still fighting and to lessen the numbers who will need to fight in the future.
Did you know $400 can provide a woman with 3 bras and 2 prosthetics or Areola pigmentation? $500 can provide a woman with 3 bras, 2 prosthetics, 1 Lymphedema sleeve and 1 Lymphedema gauntlet! With every cent raised, World of Pink Foundation helps patients from Manhattan to South Hampton and beyond.
Christine A. Guarino, RDH, CMF, CFm, founded World of Pink in 2015 with a mission to help women regain their confidence following breast surgery. World of Pink provides beautiful, comfortable pocketed bras that are supportive and help in healing, as well as top-quality breast prostheses that match a patient's skin tone and lifestyle. Best of all, World of Pink works with most insurance companies (including Medicare) to help minimize, if not eliminate, any out-of-pocket costs for its patients.
Christine is certified by the American Board for Certification in Orthotics, Prosthetics, and Pedorthics (A.B.C.) and the Board for Certification/ Accreditation (B.O.C.). She is also a Certified Lymphedema Fitter as well as the lead mastectomy fitter at World of Pink.
Christine works diligently to ensure a comfortable and friendly environment for all of her patients. Each patient is measured and fit with the proper supportive bra and prostheses that help to restore a sense of self-pride, confidence, and balance.
