  • Respect. The feelings and opinions of all people are honored and valued, even in disagreement. The language that people choose is also theirs to have. It's the feelings behind the language that is important.
  • Inclusivity. Breast cancer does not discriminate, and neither do we/does All are welcome here, without judgment, and no one shall be turned away or discouraged from participating.
  • Connection. Our shared experiences are what bring us together, and those connections are what carry us through the hardest parts of this journey. Connections require people to share some of the most intimate and personal experiences and we must all remember how hard it is to be vulnerable and unfiltered in this way.
  • Knowledge. We empower and inform members throughout their breast cancer journey with access to relevant and practical information and first-person advice and experiences.
