Our Commitment & Outreach Updates:

Shine the Light Disco Night

We initiated an annual Shine the Light Disco Night to educate the public on key breast cancer treatments/experiences/support/needs. The event incorporated a survivor fashion-show aimed at empowering all breast cancer patients in attendance to recognize and embrace their true beauty, scars and all. View Gallery


Since breast cancer affects patients both physically and emotionally, we’ve partnered with Dr. Elisabeth Counselman-Carpenter, PhD, LCSW, Adelphi University, to investigate patient views on both the psychosocial implications of a diagnosis and mental health support. Our goal is to educate patients, providers, clinicians, and community members with IRB research studies and to further programs based on peer-reviewed research.

Transportation & Emergency Support/ Hardship

We’ve partnered with UWCE and the Women’s United Transportation Fund to assist qualifying breast cancer patients with gas cards and/or uber rides to their lifesaving treatments. Additionally, we partnered with three local hospitals and their social workers to provide holiday hardship support.

Girl Scouts:

Service Project

Juliette Gordon Low, the founder of Girl Scouts, had breast cancer. She actually died from it. So, every year in her honor, Girl Scouts across America work to earn badges by spreading awareness and educating women about breast cancer. A local group made these Beads of Hope necklaces to distribute, and they had me interview survivors from all over the country when I went to San Diego for the Komen 3 Day event. (A fundraiser where we walked 60 miles in 3 days to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer). Hear what these brave women had to say in our SURVIVOR section.

Service Project & Education

Hear directly from a local girl scout, Catherine M., when she helps us better understand their organization, their founder, and what these young girls are doing to advocate for women and breast cancer.
