What is Paint Pittston Pink™?
Paint Pittston Pink™ is a registered 501c3 organization whose mission is to bring the community together to support a cure for ALL cancers through research and clinical trials.
How was Paint Pittston Pink™ created?
Paint Pittston Pink™ is the collaborative effort of 10-year cancer survivor, Barb Sciandra, along with Qiana Lehman and a committed group of selfless individuals who believe in this cause with all of their heart and soul.
The driving force behind Paint Pittston Pink™ is to bring awareness to cancer research and clinical trials and to fund a revolutionary immunotherapy vaccine and other trials – all causes that are near and dear to Sciandra’s heart.
Since our organization began in 2014, we have raised and donated nearly $635,000 to very specific cancer research.
