- Living Beyond Breast Cancer: LBBC aims to help people whose lives have been impacted by breast cancer by providing programs, services, and resources on their dynamic website.

- The Young Survivor Coalition: Founded in 1998 by three women who were under the age of 35 when diagnosed, The Young Survival Coalition (YSC) “is the premier organization dedicated to the critical issues unique to young women who are diagnosed with breast cancer. YSC offers resources, connections and outreach so women feel supported, empowered and hopeful.”
- But Doctor, I Hate Pink: As Ann Silberman describes it, she’s “blogging her life with breast cancer, from suspicion to diagnosis to treatment,” and somehow finding a way to make Stage IV Terminal Cancer funny. The “metastatic breast cancer ass-kicker” was diagnosed in 2012, and has since been offering readers the chance to experience life with her while demonstrating how to approach a breast cancer diagnosis with grace, wit, and humor.
- My Cancer Chic: Anna Crollman was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 27. Her feelings of isolation and frustration were magnified by the lack of resources available for young women with cancer trying to navigate intimacy, fertility, working, and body image. So she created her own.
- SHARE Cancer Support Blog: Founded by survivors of breast cancer and ovarian cancer, this blog features a community of women affected by both conditions who share personal stories, offer support groups, educational programs, and a hotline. They also offer their insights into treatments and research, as well as meditations on personal experiences battling, recovering from, and surviving cancer.
