community milestones

When planning for the first retreat in the beginning of 2018, we could not have possibly imagined that a weekend getaway would turn into a movement.

the beginning

In January of 2018, the first retreat takes place in the Pocono mountains. The cofounders are flooded with messages on social media asking when the next retreat will take place. The Breasties incorporates as an official 501(c)3 in March of 2018 and host four more retreats for the year. The first Move Mountains Gala takes place in October.

expansion of retreats and camp breastie 

From hiking mountains in California to white water rafting in North Carolina, The Breasties host another five retreats to empower hundreds of community members. The first Camp Breastie takes place in the Pocono mountains to bring together over 500 people for a weekend of bonding and activities. The second Move Mountains Gala takes place in October.

launch of ambassador program and virtual support

The Ambassador Program officially kicks off with 46+ chapters in cities around the world. In mid-March, in-person support is put on hold in light of COVID-19 but the community rallies together to bring support from afar. The first #CampBreastieLIVE takes place in June with over 500 attendees. Ambassadors work with the Virtual Breasties chapter to host dozens of virtual events each month.

launch of the peak and pink is not the problem campaign

The virtual programming committee continues to host weekly meetups and IG Lives around various community topics. The Breasties media platform, The Peak, launches with dozens of articles for those affected by cancer to feel empowered when making decisions surrounding their health and wellness. In October, the Pink Is Not The Problem Campaign launches to raise awareness of pinkwashing.

research expansion and community app 

The Breasties provide their first seed grant of $50,000 to stage 4 breast cancer research and officially expand the organization's mission to fund research annually. After much anticipation, The Breasties Cancer Community App launches in October and gains its first few thousand users. The App becomes a safe online space for community members to meet, connect, and share with one another. Hundreds of people gather in LA, NYC and Austin to celebrate at The Breastie App launch parties.

advocacy growth and camp breastie returns

The Breasties commit to serving their global community through a hybrid of virtual and in-person programming as well as through trusted resources. An advocacy arm of the organization begins to form to help counteract gaps in cancer care, support, research, and representation. Camp Breastie returns for the first time since the pandemic to support hundreds of people at the largest summit for the breast and gynecologic cancer community.
