The Beyond Pink TEAM is a program of the Cedar Valley Cancer Committee, a non-profit organization serving the Cedar Valley, including Grundy County. The organization is made possible by the collaborative efforts of many health organizations, businesses, and dedicated individuals throughout the area. Through support groups, social events, education, public forums, advocacy, and offering free or reduced cost screenings, the Beyond Pink TEAM hopes to reach out to anyone needing more information about breast cancer screening, diagnosis, or treatment. Beyond Pink TEAM also provides financial support for women in breast cancer treatment through their Beyond Pink Fund. Through an application process, women in treatment can request a specific bill be paid, whether a medical bill or a living expense. The organization offers up to $1,000 per calendar year for each woman. A majority of the money donated to the organization is disbursed through the Beyond Pink Fund.
