The mission of I Will Survive, Inc. is to provide economic support, prevention education, and health & wellness services to those at higher risk and those affected by breast cancer. Whereever there is a need or injustice, I Will Survive, Inc. will offer its resources regardless of economic status or affiliation. Breast cancer does not discriminate and neither do we.
Founded in 2010, I Will Survive, Inc. helps with ways to decrease risks for breast cancer by health and wellness. What you eat, how you work out, how you love yourself, limit stress, not smoking, breastfeeding, and even more- all make a difference in your life. We promote fitness on a physical, mental, and spiritual level.
Our fundraisers are focused on education and charitable gifts. Knowledge is power. Ethnic women, specifically African Americans are the highest mortality rates from breast cancer and 1 in 8 women will be affected by breast cancer in her lifetime according to CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), 1 in 1000 for men. Yes, men get breast cancer too.
