Hope After Breast Cancer Now Has 21 Contributing Experts!

When I started Hope After Breast Cancer in July 2020, I knew that I personally did not have the expertise necessary to educate our community about how to heal their unseen wounds. Guess what?

Yesterday Hope After Breast Cancer signed up our 21st Contributing Expert!

Most breast cancer support communities rely on the “tribal knowledge” of the women in that group. That’s not enough for us! Yes, tribal knowledge is certainly helpful. But at Hope After Breast Cancer, we’re bringing in the professionals to educate us, provide solutions, and give us hope!

Our Contributing Experts are often featured in our blog and will be heard from often on our new podcast. And every single week inside our THRIVER NATION membership, one of our experts spends an hour with our women, educating them on their specialty and doing a Q&A—it’s a BLAST!

Here’s our current list of Contributing Experts. And yes, you can expect more to come!
