Workshops and meetings
OmeaLife organises workshops and meetings for patients that help them achieve better quality of life during and after treatment. These are, for example, thematic workshops in the field of dietetics, psychological support, beauty care, photo sessions, and motivating meetings with inspiring people.
OmeaLife promotes a healthy lifestyle by giving lectures and inviting patients to join sport activities, fun events dedicated to them. The most popular event is Rózowa Plaza – The Pink Beach, organized on beaches in coastal resorts every summer in Poland.
Support cancer patients during the war
As soon as the war in Ukraine started, Poland was flooded with Ukrainians fleeing their country. Humanitarian aid was set up at the border and many Poles welcome Ukrainians into their homes.
Amongst them are also cancer patients who need medical care. Polish politicians make decisions about free health care for Ukrainians who crossed the Polish border after 24.02.2022.
Ada contacted Anna from Inspiration Family. They launched a hotline and were overwhelmed with the number of calls.
Think Pink Europe invited both organizations to a joint meeting and a quick decision about helping them was made. Regular meetings were set up by TPE to find out where help was needed and how organizations could work together. Fundatia Renasterea from Romania joined in too.
In April OmeaLife hired Natalia as a coordinator for patients from Ukraine! Think Pink Europe helped to finance this.

Race For The Cure
Even though Inspiration Family and OmeLife were going through difficult times, they both managed to organize a Race For The Cure event to raise funds.
In Poland, the event was smaller than before, because their focus was on helping cancer patients from Ukraine. In Ukraine, a physical event wasn’t possible because of safety issues. They had to go 100% virtual, but still managed to pull it off.
