What we do...
WE FUND CANCER RESEARCH
The TWP believe that finding a cure for breast cancer will in turn lead to a cure for all cancers. However, finding a cure for cancer requires research. Over the past several years, the TWP have donated almost $250,000 to cancer research.
WE RAISE AWARENESS
Through a variety of community events, the Tough Warrior Princesses educate and enlighten the public on the need for a cure. By sharing our stories of survival, we have inspired others, and as a result, gathered an army of supporters that continues to increase daily.
WE PROVIDE SUPPORT TO WOMEN
The Tough Warrior Princesses understand that a cancer diagnosis is life altering. It can be a long uphill battle filled with numerous challenges all while fighting for survival. These challenges can have a devastating emotional impact for families as well as a loss of financial security. The TWP provide resources and support to assist these women in their time of need.
What would a world without cancer be like? Just imagine...
The Tough Warrior Princesses (TWP) imagine this every day. We imagine it for our friend Maurine, a mother and wife who recently lost her battle with metastatic breast cancer. We imagine it for the seven survivors of our group diagnosed before the age of 40. We imagine it for our children and for the future.
What began as two survivors, hoping to make a difference, has developed into something more magical than any of us could have imagined. The friendship of two amazing women turned into a large group of inspired men and women who realized that any woman affected by cancer needs encouragement, support, and to be able to enjoy life. Thus was born the Tough Warrior Princesses.
