BURLINGTON, NC – Jeanine Patten-Coble, breast cancer survivor and founder of Little Pink Houses of Hope, has been awarded the 2014 Women Doing Good Award by SELF Magazine. Little Pink Houses of Hope (LPHOH) offers families living with breast cancer an opportunity to reconnect and celebrate life in a relaxing environment through free vacation retreats. Patten-Coble is a five year breast cancer survivor who started the organization after realizing the gap in services that exists for families of survivors.
“It is an honor to have the work of our organization recognized by SELF Magazine,” said Patten-Coble. “We want to help as many families stricken with cancer and thanks to this recognition we will be able to help more women across the country,” said Patten-Coble.
