JASMINE DIONNE SOUERS
President and CEO
Nearly three years after cofounding For the Breast of Us, the first online community for women of color affected by breast cancer, Jasmine Souers decided to tackle new challenges as an advocate in the breast cancer community.
A young breast cancer survivor herself, she understood the importance of peer support for underrepresented communities, but it was difficult to witness so many women navigate issues the blog simply wasn’t equipped to address.
Through participation on various advisory councils and volunteer committees, Jasmine discovered a passion for not only speaking for the women in her community unable to be present in the room, but also helping partners and industry leaders develop solutions to challenges faces her community.
In 2020, Jasmine began to dream about The Missing Pink Breast Cancer Alliance — an idea to move community stakeholders from awareness to action in the name of Black and brown women facing the greatest barriers to better lives well lived. Today, Jasmine is proud to lead The Missing Pink as President and CEO, working collaboratively to create community resources that improve the lives of people of color affected by breast cancer.
In addition to serving on the board of GRASP, Jasmine lends her experiences and expertise to organizations such as Young Survival Coalition, Metastatic Breast Cancer Alliance, Living Beyond Breast Cancer, UF Health and the Mayo Clinic Breast Cancer SPORE.
