Cancer101 - CANCER101’s mission is to help patients and caregivers get organized and informed to fight their cancer. We provide CANCER101 Planners to cancer centers in all 50 states to give to their patients and caregivers in need. Our planners are free to their patients and include essential organizational tools and important resources designed to empower patients and caregivers to take control over their diagnosis from the moment they learn they have cancer through the next ten years of follow-up care. Our planners encourage patients to partner with their medical team: questions are asked and answered, notes and appointments are written down in one place, and patients and caregivers feel in control. And just as importantly, the planner gives patients and their loved ones hope. Email: info@CANCER101.org

Beyond Boobs Inc - A non-profit with a dual purpose: (1) to save lives through education, especially by convincing women that they must be responsible for their own breast health, and by alerting the medical community to be vigilant in the detection of this disease in the youngest of women, and (2) to support and encourage young women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. Their vision is to take Beyond Boobs! nationwide, perhaps even international, so that all women everywhere will know the value of life-saving early detection, and that other young breast cancer survivors can experience the benefits the group gained by sharing this “journey” with each other.
