Mission Statement

Big C New Me is a national network serving cancer survivors and caregivers. We help women, men and teenagers deal with the challenges of living with and overcoming cancer by providing confidence building, educational and support programs. Don’t just survive. Thrive!

Big C New Me was founded by Amy Hart in April 2013. As a cancer survivor, Amy struggled with self-image and confidence challenges that affected her personally and professionally. After six years of good health and having recovered her confidence, she came to the realization that many others were experiencing similar problems. Closing the gap from guilt- and fear-based living to a life of acceptance became a personal mission for Amy. After the first Power Crew event, it was evident that this mission was shared by others. She was overwhelmed with volunteers wanting to make a difference, and with cancer survivors desperately needing the service.

Description

Our cornerstone program is the Power Crew. This is a one-day makeover event free to male and female cancer survivors and caregivers aged 13+. Makeovers include hair/makeup, wardrobe, and professional photo shoot. We also take time at this event to connect survivors with service providers in their area. This is a life-changing event for everyone involved and we have FUN!

Other pillars of our organization are:

- Learning Room: the educational component offering workshops and training. Online and in-person.

- Media Productions: Videos and web series offering motivation and information

- Products and Services Directory

- National chapters: local groups all over the country to help further our mission and reach more survivors and caregivers.
