Think Pink grew out of my own experiences as a cancer patient. In September 2000 I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. The tumour was removed but the metastases in the lymphatic vessels are still there. I decided to use my strength and energy to do something for fellow cancer survivors. With the financial support of Samsung Mobile, the non-profit organisation Think Pink saw the daylight on 21 September 2007. Through the years I could develop the organisation as a positive prevention campaign with a clear message: don’t give breast cancer a chance. It is our aim to offer people support during a difficult period in their lives. I know that being ill is hard. Even when you are cured of the disease, issues related to it keep lingering in your mind. However, life with the disease and afterwards is possible. For me, that life is called Think Pink. This is my way of giving breast cancer survivors the courage they need to keep going.

Serge Vandriessche

I’m one of the co-founders of Think Pink and have been involved in the development and strategy of the organisation from the very start. My years of experience as sales and marketing director at Samsung and my vast network of contacts provide added value for the further development of Think Pink.
I will focus on further developing our partnerships. I will examine how to strengthen the existing partnerships. Also, I will actively look for new partners to support us in our fight against breast cancer.

I got to know Think Pink when, as a photographer, I guided their pampering holiday for fellow-sufferers and their friends to Zinal. The enthusiasm and drive of the organisation and its employees were contagious. When I saw a vacancy appear, I immediately applied. Having the opportunity to commit to a good cause every day and feeling that what you are doing really makes a difference is the best thing there is.

Together with the event team, we work out cycling and other events from A to Z. Starting with an idea that could catch on and working on it, taking it all the way to a finished product, that's a real challenge. Putting together the pieces of the organisational puzzle while raising money for breast cancer research is everything I look for in a job! To me, an event is really successful when I see all participants leave with a big smile on their face and when they tell me what a wonderful experience it was!

Because everyone knows someone who has or has had breast cancer, it is an honor for me to commit myself daily to the fight against breast cancer. Through my expertise, I want to organise events such as the Race for the Cure that raise awareness about breast cancer. My goal: to turn the negative of the disease into a positive story. I want to support and inform fellow-sufferers and also point out to other women the importance of breast awareness and screening. That way, together, we don't give breast cancer a chance!

Sandrine Debroux

Every single one of us has a source of energy ready to be tapped into for the right projects and realizations. To me personally, and because I’ve been confronted with several sad stories in my own life, it became clear that I have to give it all I have for those who are having a hard time. Informing, raising awareness, organising events, committing myself to giving courage, hope and strength to survivors and their families: that is my new mission! Now more than ever, I believe in it for each and every one of you.

Maité Carlier

Everyone has a personal story. I also have a special reason why I wanted to work at Think Pink. Last summer, I was introduced to the organisation as a student. From February onwards, I got a lot of great opportunities during my internship at Think Pink and, since mid-June, I have been working here as a marketing assistant. Being able to dedicate myself to a good cause every day and feeling that I'm making a difference gives me a lot of satisfaction.

I hope the breast cancer campaign will grow every year. I’m completely absorbed in every project and contributing feels good. It's just a little bit different from an average job. There is a positive atmosphere at Think Pink and we work hard with a lot of passion. Together, let’s fight against breast cancer!

Febe Vandamme

I feel honored to work for an organization as Think Pink. It’s fantastic to dedicate my capacities daily in easing the struggle of women with breast cancer. I try to make people susceptible, to inform and to support them through accurate information and a positive input. It’s also a great pleasure to put my back into the “Geef om Haar” project of Think Pink.

When I got the chance to work for Think Pink, I accepted immediately. The diversity in the job appealed to me. The fact that I can put my skills to good use to support this organisation gives me great satisfaction. Through visual communication, we make sure that we not only reach people with breast cancer but also the people around them. The annual breast cancer campaign, the magazine and the book are things I am very enthusiastic about. Further development of the shop is also inspiring. Together, we are on a mission and we are fighting against breast cancer!

Mieke Deprez

Working at Think Pink means having an exciting job that matters. It is wonderful to join forces with passionate colleagues in the fight against breast cancer. Making a difference, that's what it's all about.

Sabine Devolder

Under the motto 'standing still is going backwards' I was introduced to Think Pink and I found that we shared the same vision. Think Pink is a dynamic organisation that represents an ideal shared by many people. Hard work is being done on finding solutions. The success of any organisation depends to a large extent on the motivation and commitment of the people who work there and work for it on a daily basis. And motivation and commitment are more than good at Think Pink.
