The women of Project Pink'd spent Friday working on a Habitat for Humanity house in North Omaha.

The house on North 18th street is being rebuilt using all female volunteers. The Project Pink'd women are all survivors of breast cancer, their friends and family members.

Mona McGregor is in charge of the all women build. She says “the nice thing about the women's build is the women get the opportunity to do things that they might not be able to do if they went out on a jobsite where there were men on the jobsite also”.

Julie Pabian is began her journey with cancer four years ago. She says “I was given cancer to build upon and I am now taking my foundation building myself up better and utilizing my experiences to help men and women that I come into contact with everyday to help build their house”.

Habitat for Humanity hopes to have the house finished in a few months.
