In 2019, Jasmine Souers and Marissa Thomas went from Instagram friends to partners in purpose as the founders of For the Breast of Us, the first online community dedicated to sharing stories and imagery of all women of color affected by breast cancer. Both diagnosed well before the age of 40, the two noticed a lack of representation of women who looked like them both online, in clinical trials and in the breast cancer community at large. To help close the health disparity gap, For the Breast of Us offers resources, tools and support through storytelling to help women of color overcome the barriers to quality treatment and long-term survivorship.
