“Why do you invest your time, your money, and yourself, into Breast Cancer Action?”

Our Board Co-Chair Stacey asks this question directly to Board Co-Chair Channte’, in the final video of our three-part GivingTuesday video series.

As we at Breast Cancer Action continue to do this work together, I invite you to find hopestrength, and inspiration from Channte’ and Stacey, two friends, two activists, and two impact-makers.

You can see the entire video series on our website, and find videos one and two in earlier emails in your inbox.

I encourage you to tune in to the personal stories of these powerful breast cancer activists.

Stacey and Channte’ have alignment not only in their lived experiences of breast cancer, but in their shared values, their passion for the critical work of Breast Cancer Action, and a shared political analysis of how we will address and end this disease together.

I love Breast Cancer Action,” explains Channte’, “because we are tackling such an enormous issue.… And breast cancer is so convoluted, I always say that it is a powerful storm between economics, and our environment, and racism, and power and sexism, and so those are some large buckets that we are trying to really address, in terms of fighting these systems of oppression against marginalized communities who experience the most disparate impact from breast cancer.”

Please join Stacey, Channte’, and Breast Cancer Action, in the work to address and end breast cancer for all communities. We can come together in collective action and collective support to stop this disease before it starts, but we can only do it together.

Thank you for supporting the health and well-being of all people and communities by investing in Breast Cancer Action together on GivingTuesday.
