WHAT MAKES US UNIQUE?
There are far fewer targeted, age-appropriate, and connected health and wellness resources available to young women to help with the physical and emotional scars of the disease. Scattered resources leave major gaps in the ability to heal after breast cancer. Often young women are left feeling unsupported, uninspired and disempowered.
iRise Above works to fills the gaps, helping young women heal, thrive, and live well after breast cancer. They come away feeling inspired, empowered, and supported moving forward.
