Our Story

A little about our mission...

We believe that people inherently want to help when challenges strike, but rarely know what to say or do. Pink Package takes that hesitation away by presenting you with several options to "PINK" your friend, family member or colleague with joyful gifts she will want and need throughout her [cancer, loss, relationship, health] journey.

@TeamPinkPackage we are cancer survivors who have grown through challenges, cried on the floor in defeat, laughed in unexpected moments, felt utterly alone and loved all at once.

Our founder, Katy Smith of Minneapolis, knows this place all too well and has harnessed these experiences to curate a box of joy and inspiration in the most challenging times. At 33, she was diagnosed with "occult [hidden] breast cancer", a rare form that accounts for 2% of all breast cancer patients.

"...I was overwhelmed with gratitude by those who stayed with me throughout my breast cancer journey. I know there were many more who were thinking of me, but didn’t know what to say or do.  That’s when the idea for Pink Package came to life. I wanted to create a light from what could have been a very dark experience and help others in the process.”

We @TeamPinkPackage are here to help you find a way to send doses of encouragement to your loved one so that she has something to uplift her spirits throughout her journey- whether it be health, work, relationship or loss related.

Well hello! Pleased to meet you...

Are you ready to PINK someone?
