Speakers: Anna Laura Edwards has served as the first Executive Director of Hope Scarves since September of 2021. Hope Scarves supports people facing cancer through scarves, stories, and research. This is done by collecting scarves & stories from cancer survivors and passing them on to others in treatment. Since 2012, over 35,000 Hope Scarves have been shared with people facing over 90 types of cancer in every state and 36 countries. Hope Scarves also invests in metastatic breast cancer research – raising and investing $1.24 million dollars since 2016 in basic, translational, and clinical research.

Caroline Johnson, Founder and CEO of Twisted Pink, transformed a stage III ER+ breast cancer diagnosis into a national non-profit organization to provide hope and fill the gap in research for late-stage breast cancer patients. Twisted Pink’s mission is to provide hope and connection to people living with metastatic breast cancer by funding bold breakthroughs in research and awareness of the disease. They are celebrating 10 years of providing support, research, and hope in 2024.

Hope Scarves and Twisted Pink are among our cancer support partners and we are proud to have fostered a relationship with them over the years.

Topics covered during the webinar will include:

– Where you find the most support may shock you.
– Hope is felt and you need to slow down to feel it.
– Cancer sucks, but there is living in the suckiness.
– How Hope Scarves can offer hope and encouragement to those who’ve heard the words, “You have cancer,” and the story behind its Metastatic Breast Cancer Research Fund.
– The importance of living life over cancer.
