On September 21, 2023, we hosted the webinar “People, Places, and Breast Cancer: The Pathways Study and how our communities impact survival and quality of life.” While many webinar attendees asked about how and where to get support, our speakers and panelists emphasized that systems, like our medical systems and community structures, play a large role in what is available and the quality of support during and after treatment. A major point of this forum was that resources vary by place. Where there is more money, more services are usually available. People who live in neighborhoods with others from a similar culture often feel more supported with a greater sense of community.
At Zero Breast Cancer, we develop multilingual educational resources that effectively translate scientific research into practical information for promoting health and wellness. Our commitment lies in creating materials that are not only easy to understand but also address the priorities and concerns of the communities we serve. This dedication is reflected in the development of our Generations campaign, which educates young adults and the broader community about the harmful, multigenerational effects of endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) on our health.
En Zero Breast Cancer desarrollamos recursos educativos multilingües que traducen eficazmente la investigación científica en información práctica para promover la salud y el bienestar. Nuestro compromiso radica en crear materiales que no solo sean fáciles de entender, sino que también aborden las prioridades y preocupaciones de las comunidades a las que servimos. Esta dedicación se ve reflejada en el desarrollo de nuestra campaña Generations, que educa a los adultos jóvenes y a la comunidad en general sobre los efectos dañinos y multigeneracionales de los disruptores endocrinos en nuestra salud.

Two researchers with the Pathways Breast Cancer Survivorship Study will discuss how the communities we live in play an important role in the differences in length and quality of life after a breast cancer diagnosis.
We have all heard how important sleep is for our health. The stress of a cancer diagnosis and treatment on the body and mind can make sleep more difficult, yet it is important for healing. Even people whose treatment has ended commonly have trouble sleeping occasionally. For some of us, sleep can be a struggle.
Todos hemos escuchado lo importante que es dormir para nuestra salud. El estrés del diagnóstico y el tratamiento del cáncer en el cuerpo y la mente puede hacer que dormir sea más difícil, sin embargo, es importante para sanar. Incluso las personas cuyo tratamiento ha terminado suelen experimentar problemas para dormir ocasionalmente. Para algunos de nosotros dormir puede ser una lucha.
BEACON (Beneficial, Empowering, Accessible, Cancer Online Network) is a free, self-paced online system that provides cancer patients, caregivers, and survivors tools to reduce stress, cultivate joy, and practice wellness. This program was developed by Wellness Within, a nonprofit dedicated to helping people navigate the fog of information and emotions surrounding cancer diagnosis; their goal is to give space to focus on your quality of life while letting the doctors focus on the disease.
