Allyn Rose

Patient Leader

After losing my mom, grandmother and great aunt to breast cancer by the age of 16, I made it my mission to educate myself and others on how to prevent breast cancer. Prior to undergoing a prophylactic double mastectomy at 26, I really struggled to find a comprehensive information source that would help me navigate the process. After going "viral" for the decision to undergo a mastectomy in my 20s, I've spent years collecting data, resources and referrals from women who have undergone the same procedure. In October 2019 I will be launching a global information hub for women facing mastectomy. My dream is to provide information to women in order to empower them to be their own advocates and make informed decisions regarding their healthcare.
