Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon-Competition

Each year, for hundreds of women in the United Republic of Tanzania, a positive diagnosis for cervical or breast cancer is followed by an impossible decision: travel to a far-away hospital for treatment and face the possibility of unsafe or unaffordable lodging, or stay at home and succumb to cancer.

To ease this burden, Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon®, a global partnership fighting women’s cancers, the American Cancer Society (ACS), the George W. Bush Institute, HKS, Inc., Southern Methodist University (SMU), and T-MARC Tanzania have launched an international competition to solicit designs for two “home-away-from-homes” for these women in Tanzania.
