Breast cancer is more than the pink ribbon that symbolizes the disease; it is not pink nor is it pretty. It can be a messy, devastating, life-altering, and lonely journey. The women and men represented by the pink ribbon may have the same disease, but everyone’s story is different. Behind the Pink Ribbon is a weekly podcast dedicated to sharing the stories of breast cancer survivors to uncover the reality of what lies behind the pink ribbon. We bring on experts in oncology, genetics, plastic surgery, nutrition, and more to provide information on topics specific to breast cancer. We also bring on organizations that offer resources, services, and support to breast cancer survivors and their caregivers.

This podcast will bring you stories of inspiration and hope, and a reminder that you are not alone in this journey. It will provide you with information and resources to be your own best advocate as you navigate through your journey of breast cancer.
