Dear Friends,

What a year. We have so much to be thankful for and so many people to thank for their incredible support of the No Surrender Breast Cancer Foundation!

We have grown by leaps and bounds. Membership to the support forum has doubled. Our work is being acknowledged in the media, the medical world and most importantly, among survivors. The mission of our organization has always been to help every, single woman who has heard the words, "You have breast cancer." And we are accomplishing our goals every day.

With the publicity generated by the book, "Intimacy After Breast Cancer," many more women are hearing of the work we do and are coming to us. Because so many shared our vision when we first started, we were prepared to help the newly diagnosed through their cancer journeys.

This year, we hosted our first fundraiser. There and Back: A Celebration of Survival was a powerful and emotional evening of great food, wonderful company and a stunning fashion show that featured the Warrior Angels, our breast cancer survivor models. There were models from all over, including one who flew in from Toronto. Our finale models, Christine and her baby Jack, brought down the house and lifted the hopes and dreams of everyone there.

Our goals for 2011 are to continue the trend of growth:
  • We are working with a new computer/web company to improve our website and integrate it with the forum and blog so all is cohesive and easier for the newly diagnosed woman to navigate.

  • The Before Forty Initiative is finally being heard. We are planning talks at college campuses, church groups, and social clubs to ensure that women who are at high risk, particularly in the African American Community, get their baseline screening tests by age 35.

  • The "Edge Cam" is going global. The women who read the forum are well aware of the complimentary nutritional program we recommend to improve survival and a better quality of life after treatment. All supplemental recommendations are evidence based, safe and clearly beneficial for women who are breast cancer survivors. We are making it a focal point of the main site as well as an informational pamphlet to send to anyone who wants one.

This is just the beginning. We are living up to our promise: Until they find a cure, we get women through their breast cancer and beyond.

We hope you will consider including us in your year-end gift giving plans. We may not be the most famous or "biggest" breast cancer organization (yet) but we have the heart, the caring, and the rock solid information that has transformed the lives of women all over the world. We know there is competition among charities, and you are asked to give often to many of them. But we also know that we do everything we say we will because we are breast cancer survivors ourselves and we made a promise to our fellow sisters to never, ever, surrender.

Thank you for any help you can give us. May 2011 bring you and your family great health and joy.

Warmest regards,
Gina Maisano
