Our founding story
Marisa C. Weiss, MD, founded Breastcancer.org because cancer patients need more time to ask critical questions about their care than what's typically provided during a doctor's appointment.
Today, Breastcancer.org is an education and support lifeline for millions of people affected by breast cancer. As a digital resource, we're here for everyone, in all corners of the world, at any time of the day or night. We help people find reliable answers to questions about their risk, diagnosis, treatment plan, surgical options, and more so they can live a full life beyond breast cancer.
