Pink Ribbon Cooking

Cancer Support Organizations & Community Links

The mission of Pink Ribbon Cooking is to connect, educate and support those in the breast cancer community at various contact points in a breast cancer diagnosis.  

Pink Ribbon Cooking is proud to develop relationships with organizations that embody the spirit of positive survivorship.  We specifically seek out organizations that empower the individual to live a life that is rich, rewarding and meaningful.

This page represents organizations and campaigns that Pink Ribbon Cooking has established relationships with to better support, nurture and advocate for an improved quality of life for those affected by breast cancer.


The Cancer Patient Support Program (CPS) is an independent, nonprofit organization dedicated to enhacing and furthering the availability of comprehensive psychosocial services to cancer patients and their families throughout Vermont and upstate New York. 

Our vision is that all who face cancer can do so with dignity, confidence and serenity. Contributions to CPS make possible a range of supportive services, including psychological, nutritional counseling and educational programs.

Chef Curtiss is a past member of the Board of Directors and served on the Marketing and Supportive Services committees.


The Vermont Cancer Center faculty and staff at the University of Vermont and Fletcher Allen Health Care are dedicated to providing state-of-the art cancer diagnosis and treatment, delivering compassionate care to maximize the quality of life for the patient and family throughout the disease, improving the human condition as it is affected by cancer, through fostering and sustaining innovative research in the laboratory that optimizes capabilities in the clinic, and advancing cancer prevention, control and early detection through education and research programs in a rural setting.


The Vermont-New Hampshire Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure® is dedicated to combating breast cancer at every front. Up to 75 percent of the Affiliate’s net income goes toward funding grants to local hospitals and community organizations that provide breast health education and breast cancer screening and treatment programs for medically underserved women. The remaining net income (a minimum of 25 percent) supports the national Komen Grants Program, which funds groundbreaking breast cancer research, meritorious awards and educational and scientific programs around the world.

The Komen Vermont-New Hampshire Affiliate’s services area covers all of Vermont and New Hampshire.  Thanks to the thousands of people who participant in the Susan G. Komen Vermont Race for the Cure® and the Susan G. Komen New Hampshire Race for the Cure held in Portsmouth and other Affiliate events each year, dedicated corporate partners and generous donors, Komen Vermont-New Hampshire is playing a vital role in fighting breast cancer in our community.



Vermonters Taking Action Against Cancer (VTAAC) offers the power of collaboration to what otherwise might be a lonely fight.

Created in 2005, VTAAC is responsible for putting the Vermont Cancer Plan into action by preventing overlap and directing resources to where they matter most in our state. Our activities are focused on reaching our ultimate goal: reducing the burden of cancer in Vermont.

VTAAC is a growing network of groups and individuals that speaks with one voice about reducing cancer risk, detecting cancers earlier, creating better access to quality cancer treatment, and improving the quality of life for cancer survivors.

We hope our site will be a resource for those seeking more information on cancer-related activities throughout the state.

For more information on VTAAC, contact: David Cranmer, VTAAC Coordinator at info@vtaac.org, or call 802-872-6303.
