Collaboration is an essential means for success. Thanks to the help from our valuable partners, the BeWisER+ About Breast Cancer campaign is able to empower and educate breast cancer survivors, and spread awareness about the tools and knowledge available to help inform patients and their doctors about the best treatment pathway.
Breastcancer.org is a nonprofit organization empowering those affected by breast cancer by providing them with knowledge and connecting them with a caring community.

Tigerlily Foundation was founded by Maimah Karmo, after she was diagnosed with breast cancer at 32 years old.
Maimah is committed to educating young women around the world about breast cancer; and empowering them to be their own best advocates. She is dedicated to changing the young adult breast cancer landscape and seeks to impact the quality of care and lifestyle for young women affected by this disease.
She chose to name the organization Tigerlily because like a flower loses its petals in the Fall and Winter, then blossoms and grows in the Spring and Summer, a woman undergoing treatment can also find her true beauty, strength and be transformed during and after breast cancer.
The Stargazer Lily, her personal favorite, is prized for its elegance. It is known for its heady fragrance and bold, beautiful colors. Like a woman, lilies are never dormant. They bloom and survive in all seasons.
