Empowering Equity: Tigerlily Foundation’s Fight Against Breast Cancer Disparities

Tigerlily Foundation is committed to advancing public policy to further our mission to educate, advocate for, empower, and support young women before, during, and after breast cancer. We are striving to make our vision of ending disparities of age, stage, and color in our lifetime a reality through:


We Can HEAL Together:
Legislation & Issues

Inflation Reduction Act
(IRA) Issues

Policy History
& Impact

Advocacy Tools
and Training


Tigerlily Foundation has a 16-year history in the policy landscape. Our goal has always been to advocate for impact by driving policy making to create equity for patients. Patient advocacy leadership has always been key—here within Tigerlily and in guiding public policy. We water the seeds of inspiration and innovation, and working with advocates, advocacy organizations and stakeholders, have created policies and legislation that have changed the lives of millions of people. We are excited to culminate these years of momentum into our Health Equity Advocacy and Leadership (HEAL) Policy Center for Excellence (COE).

Through Tigerlily’s HEAL Policy COE, we plan to further focus this work by educating, empowering, and lifting patient voices to ensure they are amplified, in order to achieve health equity and end disparities. The HEAL Policy COE will focus on systemic changes through policy at the local, state, and federal level to:
  • End barriers to accessing and receiving quality, equitable care for all,
  • Lead innovation through patient-leadership, and
  • Achieve health equity and eliminate disparities in breast cancer.

Through the HEAL Policy COE, we seek to influence policy for these purposes through bi-directional learning, programs, and training to cultivate a center to exchange ideas, activate voices and create lasting change.
