About Rethink Breast Cancer:

Founded in 2001, Rethink Breast Cancer (RBC) works to empower young people worldwide who are concerned about and affected by breast cancer, through innovative education, support and advocacy. RBC reports that about 1 in 9 women can expect to develop breast cancer over the course of their lifetime. RBC primarily engages in support and awareness programs, although, in F2017 it granted $3,300 to research.  

Rethink Breast Cancer highlights its Give-A-Care program wherein a personalized care package with products such as headache balm, t-shirts, and toques are provided to recipients. In F2018, RBC reports that during its Pay-It-Forward campaign it raised enough money to send 200 packages to women in need. Its goal for the end of F2018 was to send 450 packages.

Rethink Breast Cancer works to provide digital resources to help women affected by breast cancer better navigate their experience with cancer, as well as providing stories of inspiration and support. In F2018, RBC reports providing nearly 200 original blogs and over 20 videos as part of this initiative.
