Designer Creates Breast-Free Fashion

After seeing how hard it was for a breast cancer survivor to find clothing after opting out of reconstructive surgery, Sakina Iskender set out to create flattering "breast-free fashion."

End Breast Cancer

Every 13 minutes a woman dies of breast cancer. And two of the biggest risk factors are the ones we cannot control: getting older and being a woman. If we're going to see a decrease in the number of deaths from this deadly disease, we need to renew our commitment to eradicating it completely.

Mammograms for Women in Need
Mammograms are one of the best methods to catch breast cancer before it's too late. In fact, if the disease is caught early enough, the five-year survival rate is 96%. But many women in the United States lack health insurance that covers the full cost of mammograms, and cannot afford to pay for them out-of-pocket. Donations through this Gift That Gives More™ help fund free mammograms for low-income, uninsured, and working women. Thank you!

Help close the healthcare gap by bringing early detection to those who cannot afford it.
