Spotlight on Business: Pleasure Island Day of Hope

Pleasure Island Day of Hope, Inc. is a non-profit 501c3 whose mission is to bring cancer awareness to the Community while raising funds that will help our family, friends and neighbors who are going through their cancer journey.

In 2015 we will be having our “Toes in the Sand” Beach walk on September 26th. This will be our 3rd Annual event and is a stroll on the beach with all proceeds used to support our Community residents with any cancers, who need financial assistance. In addition, we help NHRMC Pink Ribbon Project provide mammography screening and diagnostic testing for breast cancer.

We are also in the planning stages for a Survivor/Caregiver group which we are looking to begin the 2nd quarter of 2015. This group will focus on wellness issues and invite speakers who will provide information on the survivors’ cancer journey and the role of the caregiver during that time. Also, complimentary treatments will be highlighted which will be beneficial to both the survivor and caregiver (ie: acupuncture, massage, exercise, etc.).

In 2014 we introduced our “Day of Hope Necklace” as a fundraiser and they are available throughout the year. Necklaces are available by contacting us via our website or visiting Touché Ladies Fashions in Carolina Beach.

Our website is currently open to accept donations and to register for our “Toes in the Sand” beach walk. Visit us at: www.dayofhopepi.org. We are also on Facebook at: Pleasure Island Day of Hope.
