We started this education and fundraising campaign to address fear as one of the many barriers that may keep people from getting the best care possible. We know we can never remove all of the fears around breast cancer. We know everyone responds to and lives with fear differently. Our goal is to motivate people to courageously and confidently make informed health and life decisions.
Get Involved• Share the facts about breast cancer and breast health found in our toolkit.
• Host a fundraising event (make it a Halloween party if you think that will help your friends and loved ones get involved).
• Contribute your stories of addressing your own fears of breast cancer (just as no two cancers are alike, there is no one way through it).
• Support each other by joining our growing community.

People share their stories of fear and courage.
“If I feel worried or anxiety coming on, I try to distract myself with some activity, playing with my kids, reading a book, playing a brain game, gardening, etc. – staying busy without a lot of time on my hands helps with any anxiety/fears.”
“What scares me most is the feeling that it's never truly gone, that is forever lying in wait ready to take up residence in a distant location, threatening your life.”
“I conquered fear and moved forward. There was no going back to the safe life that my husband and I once had. Hearing the ‘c-word’ changed us physically, mentality, and emotionally...all for the better.”
