After being diagnosed with triple positive breast cancer at the young age of 24, Alexandria Whitaker immediately pledged to never let another young woman facing a cancer diagnosis feel like they were going through it alone, thus forming #WhittysTittyCommittee. Alexandria hit the ground running, using her media contacts to help her spread the word about her story. Her goal to simply raise awareness for the prevalence of breast cancer in young women and to create a community for other diagnosed women was expanded upon when she realized she had the platform to truly inspire individuals of all backgrounds, genders and experiences. Today, Alexandria uses her platform to inspire and motivate to share the experiences of her “new normal”, as well as her trials and triumphs, with a wide worldwide audience. www.whittystittycommittee.com
