HOW WE ARE DIFFERENT
At iRise Above we share a passion for collaboration, innovation, inspiration, and empowerment. These values allow us to be committed to ourselves, each other, our participants and their respective health and wellness iJourney's. Setting healthy mind-body-spirit goals is essential for long-term sustainable healthy living, and are the building blocks of the iRise Above targeted pathways to health and wellness.
THE OPPORTUNITY PRESENTS UNLIKE ANY OTHER
iRise Above was created by young women affected by breast cancer for young women affected by breast cancer. We - more than any other - understand the challenges associated with having breast cancer as a young woman, and the urgent need to fill the gaps with targeted, age-appropriate, and connected health and wellness resources, because we have lived it!
iRise Above strives to change the conversation about breast cancer by rethinking it's meaning. We challenge old paradigms and change perceptions of what it means to have breast cancer. We are strong. We thrive, not just survive. Together we dispel the myth that we are victims. We will not be defined by breast cancer. We choose wellness so that we may live the best version of ourselves.
iRise Above values self-empowernent and self-advocacy. iRise Above provides remote access to quality information for self-care and self-health promotion in the areas of, but not limited to, physical fitness, nutrition, mindfulness and meditation, spirituality and yoga, as well as complementary therapies and treatments.
iRise Above offers a Wellness Collective to our participants.
iRise Above offers an authentic support network through an online forum administered by women with breast cancer for women with breast cancer.
iRise Above enables our participants to complete a unique expedition challenge of their choice - one traditionally considered unachievable by many.
iRise Above values a culture of giving through the Rise Above, Give Beyond philanthropy program. Giving is an essential healing process to help women reclaim self and self-direction.
