When we commit to grow as disciples together, our ability to make God’s love real is strengthened exponentially. We invite you to join us in 2022 as we seek new life in Jesus Christ through extravagant generosity, discipleship, worship, reconciliation, hospitality, and justice in our Durham community.

We move forward in faith, secure in the bounty of God’s love, knowing that God will work in and through us as we serve the poor and make disciples locally and throughout the world. Please complete the pledge form with prayerful reflection and commit to practicing extravagant generosity!

                                      How Common Is Breast Cancer?

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in American women, except for skin cancers. There is a 1 in 8 chance a woman in the United States will develop breast cancer sometime in her life.

Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women. Only lung cancer kills more women each year.

Since 2007, breast cancer death rates have been steady in women younger than 50, but have continued to decrease in older women.

These decreases are believed to be the result of finding breast cancer earlier through screening and increased awareness, as well as better treatments.


In recognition of breast cancer awareness month and those people affected by breast cancer and seeking healthcare resources, I wanted to bring attention to the Pretty in Pink Foundation, located in Raleigh, NC, which serves North Carolinians diagnosed with breast cancer who are under-insured or uninsured.

To make managing breast cancer a little easier, the Pretty In Pink Foundation helps ensure that quality, life-saving medical treatment (surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy) is available to breast cancer patients residing in North Carolina.


In 2004, Raleigh breast cancer surgeon, Dr. Lisa Tolnitch (pictured at right), discovered that some of her patients were not completing their treatment plans after diagnosis of breast cancer. Many lacked the funds to pay for chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery, and were being forced to choose between paying for medical treatment or living expenses.

Unable to accept this potentially deadly reality, Dr. Tolnitch was motivated to establish Pretty In Pink Foundation. Since serving its first patient in 2006, the Foundation has covered the cost of thousands of life-saving treatments for breast cancer patients – our Champions - in North Carolina.
