Because She Served

Recent studies have shown that women who served in the military have increased risks for breast cancer.  In an effort to support those who have served our Nation, we seek opportunities to educate veterans about breast cancer, bring free screening to homeless veterans and provide financial support to any veteran experiencing financial difficulties due to breast cancer. 

Hattitude

A hat is the crown of glory. It symbolizes pride and fortitude for an individual. This is why the Donna M. Saunders Foundation created "Hattitude"—A luncheon dedicated towards our cancer survivors and warriors celebrating their strength and desire to heal with dignity during their recovery period. It’s an afternoon of families coming together from all walks of life to acknowledge one another’s courage and success.

Hearts of Pink

The Superbowl is the largest viewed sporting event in the world outside of soccer. The dedication a football fan has behind their favorite team ignites a moment in time where like minds share their passion and camaraderie. The Donna M. Saunders Foundation created "Hearts of Pink" for men and women to escape from their current healing process and enjoy the festivities of a Superbowl viewing party to help raise funds for their fellow survivor and warriors.

Pink Tie Guys

Pink Tie Guy is a platform to allow men who support breast cancer warriors by raising funds for the Donna M Saunders Foundation (DMSF).  Some of our Pink Tie Guys have a personal experience with breast cancer, while others understand the need and support the fight against the disease.  All of them are behind our efforts to raise funds to continue the fight to provide resources for those experiencing cancer treatments and who are in need of financial relief, as well as to educate communities on cancer awareness.  During the month of October, our guys will engage in a little friendly competition to help the DMSF raise funds by rallying their friends, family and associates to sponsor their efforts with a “click" and submit donations for the race of raising the most funds for the foundation.  The guy to raise the most money by the end of the month will be named DMSF Inc Pink Tie Guy of the year.  

Pink Fit

Pink Fit


A part of health and wellness is to incorporate a physical work out routine during the recovery phase. "PINK Fit" is a full day of learning various options in our daily regimen, dietary options and an opportunity to bond with cancer survivors and warriors.

A Trip to Broadway

The most popular city that the whole world comes to visit is New York City—and the destination during their visit is Broadway. For over three years, the Donna M. Saunders Foundation has hosted a successful bus trip from the Washington DC area for our constituents to experience a day in New York to see a top Broadway.  This SOLD OUT adventure provides a captive audience to educate attendees about breast cancer during the bus trip to the city.  We look forward to you joining us for a wonderful experience.
