We are here to educate, support, empower and advocate for you.

Tigerlily Foundation is here to support young women (age 15 – 45) before, during, and after breast cancer. Our outreach is focused on the breast cancer community as a whole. This community consists of family, friends, health advocates, physicians, researchers, and more. We reach diverse communities, ethnic groups, and those who are underserved. From living rooms to classrooms, from board rooms to Capitol Hill, we are there, making a difference.

Being diagnosed with breast cancer opens you up to a whole new world of jargon, experiences, and feelings. What gives you power as you begin your journey is understanding breast cancer and knowing your facts, so that you become an educated partner in your own treatment and recovery. Our goal is to offer you information that will help you better understand breast cancer, so that you are empowered and knowledgeable.


Tigerlily Foundation’s BREATHE Tv is a sacred space, an educational and inspirational breast cancer lifestyle web series that brings together patients, providers and loved ones in a space of purpose, while engaging in authentic and meaningful conversations about cancer.


Clinical Trials

Tigerlily Foundation’s Clinical Trials Program is a transformational initiative to accelerate the delivery of innovative treatments to our patients, with a strategic focus on populations that are facing the highest disparities. 


At Tigerlily Foundation, our focus is on reminding of you how beautiful and strong you are, throughout your breast cancer journey. Our hope is that by the time treatment is over, you will not only have new life, but be transformed into a “New You.” Through our Fearless Female Program we can help you get there.

Hope Box Program

This program is for young women newly diagnosed or currently in treatment for breast cancer, diagnosed 45 years of age or under. Being diagnosed with breast cancer is something no one wants to deal with. Treatment can be overwhelming and leave you feeling alone and with tons of questions.


POWER (People-driven Outcomes through real-World Evidence and Research) People often think that research is something that is done in a lab or that involves taking a drug.  In fact, research is more than that. 



Although there is global awareness of breast cancer, people are not always aware that younger women can and do get breast cancer. There is a need for change in terms of ensuring better representation of issues facing younger women’s health in the community. Tigerlily Foundation works to advocate for that change.

Young Women’s Breast Health Day on the Hill

In 2009, Tigerlily Foundation worked with Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz to develop the Breast Cancer Education and Awareness Requires Learning Young (EARLY) Act. With $9 million per year in proposed funding for five years, the EARLY Act calls for a national education campaign about the risks that young adult women (under 45) face from breast cancer.

Being a breast cancer survivor is not just a name we attribute to those who have made it through this journey. It is a way of life. Being a survivor means that you are part of a sisterhood, and it means that as strong as you are, you’ll need help along the way. Tigerily’s support programs offer everything from peer support, hope bags, meals and financial assistance, to a way to connect with other young survivors in real time. We are here to help you through this journey. Just reach out your hand and someone will be here to hold it, and guide you along the way.

MY LIFE Program

We know that you don’t want to have to learn about this, but the more educated you are about the topic, the more empowered you are to make decisions that are right for you. Being diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer does not mean that there is no hope.

RAISE Program

Tigerlily’s RAISE platform supports patients in overcoming financial and non-financial challenges that they face going through treatment. RAISE makes it easy for a patient to share their needs, but more importantly makes a patient’s needs visible to those that are willing and able to provide support.


Pure Cat Initiative

Tigerlily Foundation’s Pure Cat Initiative was launched in honor of Catherine Odderstol, a sassy yogi, who danced through life, spread light and joy with everyone she met, and who left us the gift of her eternal free soul. Cat was dedicated to helping others have a mind, body, spirit approach to health and wellness.
