Boarding for Breast Cancer (B4BC), a 501(c)3 nonprofit foundation providing breast cancer education, prevention and survivor support programs for young people, is hosting its first ever virtual wellness series on October 10th, 17th and 24th during Breast Cancer Awareness month. Registration is now open and available on Eventbrite and tickets are free with a suggested $50 donation to B4BC.
B4BC’s Chasing Sunshine Virtual Wellness Series Presented by Suja Organic will provide participants from across the globe with insights from some of the most forward-thinking, educated, and inspiring doctors, healers, teachers, and therapists, who specialize in cancer and supportive therapies. Spread across Breast Cancer Awareness Month for maximum impact, the series will feature three select sessions, each at three to four hours in length. Women who are managing breast cancer pre, during, and post care, as well as anyone (women, men, and gender nontransforming) who are interested in learning more are welcome to register.
“Our goal is to connect with hundreds of women from all over the world who are managing breast cancer diagnoses, treatments, and more, said B4BC President and co-founder Lisa Hudson. “For the first time, the virtual series will allow us to target a global audience reaching anyone that is inspired by our wellness series and wants to learn more about the topics we are offering”.
The Chasing Sunshine Virtual Wellness Series Presented by Suja Organic will be hosted by Megan Pischke – Wellness Director at B4BC, whose own breast cancer journey, documented in the documentary film Chasing Sunshine, inspired the holistic approach for the wellness series. She will be joined by co-host and life coach, Kari Keating. EDGEsport, ‘the sports channel for the future’, will partner with B4BC to produce a highlight reel from the three wellness events to be featured on Friday, October 30, 2020.

“The integrative part of this Wellness Series is incredibly important as it includes so much that is connected to our ability to heal, including emotional, physical, and mental well-being,” said Pischke, breast cancer survivor and former professional snowboarder. "With our diverse program, our goal is to not only empower all who join us, but to provide knowledge, tools, and community connection that nurtures those going through breast cancer while on their path of self-discovery, healing and long-term survivorship.”
