Tigerlily Foundation is one of the only nation-wide organizations providing full-lifecycle assistance to young women – before, during and after breast cancer – to include education, survivorship support, advocacy programs to support young women living with metastatic breast cancer and more. What differentiates us from other foundations are our critical focus areas: 1) specifically on young women – from ages 15 – 45; 2) on improving quality of life; and 3) on lifestyle and prevention, empowering young women to be their own best advocates.
