let's get breast cancer off our chest

We are a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that believes healing, strength, and empowerment are found in shared experience and that art heals.

When I was diagnosed with breast cancer I turned to the breast cancer community - survivors, caregivers, and industry angels - for advice, hope, and inspiration. Now, in engaging, empowering, and deeply personal videos the breast cancer community is sharing its experiences with YOU. Their real stories offer insight, strength, and hope for anyone looking to navigate their diagnosis, treatment, and recovery.

Please take a few minutes to watch my story and learn what inspired me to found Bare Breasted Against Breast Cancer.

Art Heals

Breast Cancer has reawakened my creativity and reunited me with my faith in Creative Arts Therapy. I have an M.A. in Drama Therapy from NYU, and I worked as a Drama Therapist at Bellevue Hospital in NYC for almost a decade. Though I took a hiatus from this meaningful work, my breast cancer has lead me back to my faith in and commitment to the healing power of the arts.

Bare Breasted Against Breast Cancer is currently in the process of developing a new series of episodes focused on the healing power of the arts. We believe "A Little Improv Goes A Long Way"

NY1 "New Yorker of the Week"

I am deeply honored to be the "New Yorker of the Week" on NY1's channel and website!

Host Pat Kiernan interviewed me while I was filming my friend Kelly Collamore; they spoke with us about the importance of support and sisterhood. The producer, Leisha Majtan, really captured the essence of our Mission!
