Our Story

Tough Enough to Wear Pink Crisis Fund (TETWP) was created by Columbia County Resources, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, to help cancer patients of Columbia County, Florida, and surrounding counties with medical expenses.

When the TETWP Crisis Fund was established it was dedicated to helping residents who live in the North Central Florida Area, concentrating primarily on Columbia, Suwannee, and Hamilton Counties.

In October of 2020, we formed a partnership with the Suwannee River Breast Cancer Awareness Association; in doing that, we have now opened our reach to help anyone in need in the counties that touch the Suwannee river.

At Tough Enough to Wear Pink, we partner with Suwannee River Breast Cancer Awareness Association to assist us with the screening process to ensure the needs are met within our community.  Since 2009 the TETWP Crisis Fund has provided assisted local families battling illnesses in our community.
