About Breastcancer.org

We are a nonprofit organization founded by breast oncologist Marisa C. Weiss, MD, and born out of her conviction that people with breast cancer need more than a doctor's visit can provide.

We are the leading patient-focused resource for breast health and breast cancer information and support. We engage, educate, and empower people with our expert information and dynamic peer support community to help them make the best decisions for their lives.

Since 2000, we have reached 194 million people worldwide. Breastcancer.org receives more than 20 million visits each year, and we host the world’s largest online breast cancer peer community, with more than 200,000 registered members.

Breastcancer.org relies on both traditional non-profit fundraising and advertising support and as such operates as a leading digital publisher. For the talented and experienced technology leader who wants more emphasis on impact than profit – but appreciates and thrives in business-oriented culture – Breastcancer.org is the place for you.
