Mission Statement

We build communities that take action in breast cancer.

Description

Our Vision: Our Vision - is to improve the standard of care in breast health and quality of life post diagnosis through fitness.

Our Story: Barbells for Boobs owes its origins to the friendship between founder Zionna Hanson and Cecy Morales.

At 26 years old, Cecy discovered a lump on her breast. She was denied breast screening services by her doctor and recommended a " mammography at age 40 ". Not satisfied, Cecy advocated for her own health. Due to her persistence, she discovered that she was living with breast cancer.

The reality that no one is immune to breast cancer Z pursued her passion for health and fitness, Barbells for Boobs was born.
