The Every Ribbon Counts Foundation raised over $75,000 as part of our fundraising efforts in 2019 and the first part of 2020. These funds established non medical support funds, added program support options to the Cancer Support Community and the Pediatric Cancer Foundation, provided support to our last wish fund and helped meet the needs and goals of our partner non-profits. Due to the global pandemic, we are suspending all in person events until 2022. Regardless of the incredible need, we are doing what we can virtually to continue to make a difference. Your donation online will help.
Every Ribbon Counts Foundation
What we Do
From raising funds to creating community awareness to partnering with other non-profits with a similar vision and mission, the Every Ribbon Counts Foundation works to help all those affected by cancer, help support their families, friends, and create a community that cares in various ways.
The Think Pink Foundation started by Dr. Susan Mattes Bostian in 1997 gave birth to the Every Ribbon Counts Foundation in 2019. Now with esteemed leadership with Abby Silfies and Susan Bostian and a team of incredible board members we we have grown to be more than just a foundation supporting those with breast cancer. From events in Disney supporting the Kellie's Hope Foundation, to a challenge that supported the Cancer Support Community and the Pediatric Cancer Foundation, the sky is the limit as to what we can do.
In 2021 we had the opportunity to work on the set of The Lucky Louie movie, supporting a few volunteers and actors with a dream. This lead to our involvement in The Hail Mary, produced by A Channel of Peace, where a mom with lymphoma had a dream of seeing her son in a movie, and we helped support that dream.
Last Wishes. Dreams. Education. Advocacy. Awareness. Support. Financial Assistance.
Making a difference when a difference is needed.
The Every Ribbon Counts Foundation is growing.

Designing the perfect image for the Every Ribbon Counts Foundation started with a discussion between two friends who have had the passion of making a difference in the lives of those with cancer. From pink, to grey, to laying out how this ribbon would look with the flowers representing all of the colors of cancer was a moment of pure inspiration captured by TJ Bostian as he listened to the vision we had and how we wanted it to come across. From a pencil sketch born out of our conversation of how we want to change the world, we hope this ribbon inspires everyone to reach, share, grow, support, and connect with us in the One Fight against All Cancer while supporting our community at the same time.
The Story Behind Our Ribbon
Pink - The color associated with breast cancer, a fight that Susan Bostian has volunteered for over the past 24 years
after the diagnosis of her mother, followed by her little sister a few years ago.
Grey - The color associated with brain cancer, a fight that has given the power behind the passion of Abby Silfies after
this cancer took the life of LJ, friend and source of life-long inspiration for us all.
The Gladiola Flower - Strong, Moral Integrity, Loyalty. Has a strong and powerful history, and invokes passion. Grows in many colors, and grows best in a community of other gladiolas.
Our ribbon features the gladiola blossom symbolizing strength, passion, and the power of community.
