About Pink Ball...
Pink Ball is a black-tie gala bringing together those in the community who share a commitment to fighting breast cancer as a life-threatening disease in Japan, and spearheading greater awareness, diagnosis and treatment among Japanese women of all ages – especially in medically underserved regions. The funds raised through Pink Ball go a long way toward the Foundation’s community outreach programs that include the Lemon Project seminars and publication of PiNK magazine, one of our most vital media tools for bringing the latest information about breast cancer treatments and health-related topics on exercise, food, nutrition, and survivor beauty tips to women living in Japan.
