The Missing Pink Breast Cancer Alliance is a network of individuals, nonprofits and businesses invested in improving the lives of people of color affected by breast cancer. Members of The Missing Pink Breast Cancer Alliance work collaboratively to create community resources that improve the lives of people of color affected by breast cancer.
The challenges minority communities face regarding breast cancer are too big for one person or organization solve. The Missing Pink Breast Cancer Alliance provides a space for people on the same mission to connect, share insight and develop strategies that eliminate barriers to quality care, better engage minority breast cancer patients in advocacy, and improve the quality of life of people of color affected by breast cancer.
We harness the power of innovation through collaboration and patient advocacy to eliminate barriers to quality healthcare and improve quality of life for people of color affected by breast cancer.
Our current workstreams are:
- Research And Ribbons – What happens after impactful research shines a light on the challenges facing minorities in the breast cancer community? Not enough. Research And Ribbons is a community learning exchange that uses research as the foundation for better ways of serving communities of color.
- More Life Magazine – Not only does representation matter, every ace belongs in its place. More Life Magazine is a publication centered on the needs and experiences of minority breast cancer patients and the people who support them created by minority breast cancer patients and the community that supports them. With More Life Magazine there’s need for competition or any organization to be all things to all people. More Life Magazine curates the best content and resources for minority breast cancer patients to help them navigate treatment in a way that fits their personal definition of healing and quality of life.
- The Grapevine Advocacy Training Guide – With misinformation, myths and misconceptions continuing to be a challenge in minority communities, it’s important people who want to become advocates have access to the basic knowledge needing to be effective on their advocacy journey. This guide provides DEI guidelines for breast cancer advocacy content development, recruitment efforts and program design while encouraging accompliceship across the community.
