The Pink Wig Foundation is a non-profit organization based in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
Founded in the memory of Tracy Dinh, we are carrying out Tracy’s wish to see that other people in similar situations receive the same kind of generosity and help that she was so grateful to have in her time of need. During Tracy’s struggle, a financial need was recognized for cancer patients and their families, which is what drives the foundation, along with providing awareness about small cell cervical cancer, a rare and aggressive form of cancer.
To date, we have organized 20 major events and have been the charity of choice for other various events in Saskatoon, raising over $150,000. Pink Wig has also made appearances on the Global News Morning Show & CTV Morning News to promote our upcoming events to Saskatoon and surrounding area. Saskatoon has been extremely supportive and generous towards our foundation, standing by our cause and even getting involved through volunteer efforts or other means of support.
Our fundraising efforts have allowed us to financially support ten cancer patients with $10,000 each to go towards living expenses and any medical costs or needs they may have, all within the first five years of operation. Our goal is to be able to steadily increase the number of applicants who receive financial support, in hopes to make a positive impact for those in Saskatchewan who are undergoing cancer treatment or are in recovery.
