Breast Cancer Confidence Project
These books will be gifted to women newly diagnosed with breast cancer upon entering treatment at one of our participating breast cancer treatment centers. Our goal is to provide reassurance, encouragement, and to positively influence those grappling with fears of lost confidence and/or bodily insecurity.
In effort to create a product that represents the diverse backgrounds and experiences of those impacted by breast cancer, applicants are asked to provide demographic information. Candidates will be selected for additional interview based on their responses to this form. Final selections will be made by our board of directors following review of applications for optimal diversity and inclusivity – we want this book to be relatable for ALL people battling breast cancer
Social Gatherings, Community Events, Appearances, & Collaborations
We love bringing people together and building connections within the breast cancer community! Our breast friends meet up several times a year for intimate social gatherings and bonding. We also believe in unity and the power of alliance amongst groups serving those with breast cancer and other serious diseases, and often partner with other local organizations that work towards similar goals.
