The amazing organizations we support

Breast Cancer Education Association

Survivors, families and friends are learning to live as fully as possible with this disease as they bravely explore treatment options, incorporate emotional and lifestyle changes and try to prevent the disease. Our conference brings the community’s best medical and therapeutic breast health experts together with anyone concerned about breast cancer for a day of learning on how to live as fully as possible when breast cancer touches your life. More and more women and men too, at a younger and younger age are diagnosed annually with breast cancer. Through education one can not only survive this disease but also live courageously, creatively and with grace. Our program crosses all boundaries and supports a broad range of healing philosophies and possibilities. We want to open doors and make access to knowledge easy for you. There is no other program like it in the Twin Cities.

The Firefly Sisterhood

The Firefly Sisterhood is a non-profit organization that fosters one-to-one connections and support between breast cancer survivors and the recently diagnosed. Breast cancer can be devastating. However, we know that with the support of someone who has been through treatment, surgery, or reconstruction, the journey from diagnosis to healing can be less daunting.
