Welcome to Surviving & Thriving 2015!
In its 13th season, Pink Alliance and the Surviving & Thriving Luncheon Committee are very excited to invite you to join us as we welcome Joan Lunden to Bryan/College Station for our annual celebration of surviving and thriving on Thursday, October 8!!! This year's luncheon is guaranteed to sell-out quickly, so please make plans to join us and make your luncheon reservation today.
Over the past 12 years, this community luncheon has raised more than $480,000 to support local breast health initiatives, serve breast cancer patients, and further cancer awareness.
The Surviving & Thriving Luncheon is hosted by Pink Alliance, a local non-profit organization and advocate for breast health and cancer support in the Brazos Valley. A group of dedicated community volunteers join Pink Alliance in hosting this annual luncheon. Proceeds from the luncheon remain in the Brazos Valley to serve and support local breast cancer patients and to advance breast health and cancer awareness efforts through Pink Alliance.
As the community’s premiere women’s health awareness event, Surviving & Thriving continues to touch the lives of breast cancer patients, survivors and women. In so doing, the committee remains focused on its initial goal – to celebrate cancer survivorship, increase public awareness about good breast health, and support local breast cancer patients.
A special thanks to the countless medical professionals and business sponsors who continue to support and advocate for this important women’s health issue.
Thank you for joining us as we celebrate another year of “Surviving & Thriving.”

Pink Alliance provides reliable, informative resources; inspires hope through individual and group support; and offers access to medical treatments for those with limited means. In 2013, Pink alliance partnered with Health for All in hosting its inaugural Mammograms for the Brazos Valley Day which provided over 25 free mammograms to women in need. Last year, 77 breast cancer patients received over $43,000 in medical financial assistance from the Alliance.
