WHAT WE’RE ALL ABOUT

Breast Cancer Hawaii is a volunteer-run website that curates and publishes information that is relevant to Hawaii's breast cancer survivors and co-survivors. Here, you will find information on local support groups and meetups, links to useful articles and websites, and details on upcoming events that might be of interest.  This is an ad-free site dedicated to providing all things related to Breast Cancer x Hawaii to the local community. 

 
 

WE'RE LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS!

We have a lot of big plans for informative content to publish on the site, but need help with researching, writing, and keeping our content fresh!  If you would like to help with this project, please contact breastcancerhawaii@gmail.com. This site would not be possible without the contributions of our wonderful volunteers! 

MEET OUR TEAM

Breast Cancer Hawaii was started in 2016 by two local survivors who had spent a lot of time during their treatment researching information on resources and support groups in Hawaii. There are so many wonderful organizations both locally and nationally that provide valuable services to breast cancer survivors, but it can be difficult to navigate through all of the different websites out there. They came up with an idea to sift through all of the sites and compile the most useful information in one location to help fellow survivors in Hawaii.

She was born and raised in Hawaii.  She currently works as a risk analyst for a financial firm. During her free time, she likes to research nutritious recipes and cook them for her family. She loves traveling and spoiling her cat. She also volunteers as a State Leader for the Young Survival Coalition and a Community Connector for Living Beyond Breast Cancer.  

jane

Jane has been a survivor of Stage 2B Triple Positive Invasive Breast Cancer since 2015. She was born in the Philippines, but raised in Hawaii since the age of 3.  She is currently working at a public high school as a part-time teacher.  In her spare time, she enjoys baking, crafting, and scrapbooking; but mostly, she loves spending time with her family. If there is one thing she learned from her journey with breast cancer, it would be to “Embrace the Change — to celebrate life and enjoy the new you.”
