Key Collaborators

The Key Collaborators are a group of people in the breast cancer community with lived experience, either as someone with breast cancer or a caregiver, who work closely with Rethink on projects and initiatives, largely informing and helping shape the work Rethink does. These individuals offer their time as passionate patient advocates and volunteers to help rethink breast cancer, representing the breast cancer community and bringing the community’s voice to the table. Within the Key Collaborators, we have a few groups including the MBC Advisory Board and Equity, Diversity + Inclusion Working Group.
