Tigerlily Foundation is a national breast cancer foundation providing education, awareness, advocacy and hands-on support to young women (15-45) – before, during and after breast cancer.
MISSION: To educate, advocate for, empower, and support young women before, during and after breast cancer.
VISION: We envision a future where a breast cancer diagnosis doesn’t inspire fear, but ignites hope for a future because:
- We can inspire young women diagnosed with breast cancer to transform inside and out as they journey through treatment to live their best life going forward.
- We empower young women to be advocates for change.
- Breast cancer will no longer be a terminal disease but rather a chronic disease that will someday be cured.
Through our programs, we seek to educate and empower women of all backgrounds including those at heightened risk, those facing health disparities, and those with less access to care. We strive to improve the quality of life and end isolation among breast cancer survivors. Most importantly, we encourage and endeavor to empower fearless females in every stage of their journey, and to show them that they are not or alone, but that they are beautiful, strong like the tiger and the lily, and that they can be transformed – during and after breast cancer.
We are here to educate, support, empower and advocate for you.
Tigerlily Foundation is here to support young women (age 15 – 45) before, during and after breast cancer. Our outreach is focused on the breast cancer community as a whole. This community consists of family, friends, health advocates, physicians, researchers and more. We reach diverse communities, ethnic groups and those who are underserved. From living rooms to classrooms, from board rooms to Capitol Hill, we are there, making a difference.

Being diagnosed with breast cancer opens you up to a whole new world of jargon, experiences, and feelings. What gives you power as you begin your journey is understanding breast cancer and knowing your facts, so that you become an educated partner in your own treatment and recovery. Our goal is to offer you information that will help you better understand breast cancer, so that you are empowered and knowledgeable.
