FAQ

What is Give-A-Care?

Give-A-Care is a collection of helpful, high-quality products created by Rethink Breast Cancer, a registered charity with over 15 years experience working with young women with breast cancer. It is the first line of products for young women with breast cancer, that actually understands young women with breast cancer.

Show that you Give-A-Care by building a custom care package that acknowledges what they’re really going through, while opening doors for conversations to get real—and most importantly—giving her the care she really needs.

What are the Care Guidelines for Young Women with Breast Cancer?

Here at Rethink Breast Cancer, we’ve developed a set of recommended Care Guidelines for Young Women with Breast Cancer to ensure their needs are addressed in a timely manner. Some of the challenges younger women with breast cancer may face include diagnosis during pregnancy, effects of chemotherapy on fertility, menopausal symptoms or osteoporosis, feelings of isolation, questions about sexuality, childcare, relationships, dating, employment and finances. Our Care Guidelines provide information about these issues that a young woman with breast cancer may want to discuss with healthcare providers involved in her treatment and care. They are recommendations on the kind of information and support to which she should be given access to.

Where does the money go?

Thanks to generous donations from our product partners, 100% of proceeds from the Give-A-Care Collection will help fund Rethink Breast Cancer’s programs that support young women and families affected by breast cancer. You can check out our work at rethinkbreastcancer.com.
