Building upon Tigerlily’s successful My Life is My Legacy video series, My Life is My Legacy Brazil seeks to change how the world thinks, feels, and understands MBC, as well as, how to support patients and caregivers living with the disease. In partnership with FEMAMA, Tigerlily empowers MBC patients to share their stories of action elevating their voices for change. The My Life is My Legacy Brazil series is a powerful collection of stories from patients, caregivers, and family members focused on removing the stigma in their communities and empowering every viewer to be a vehicle of transformation. This series is an engaging and culturally relevant educational material for the world, by sharing these heroic stories, we are planting seeds of power, hope, and participation.

#MyLifeIsMyLegacy series by Tigerlily Foundation are the stories of people who are mBC, eBC and those who have not been diagnosed with cancer. These stories build a bridge of knowledge, love, faith and transformation that help us understand the impacts of breast cancer and provide guidance that will help generations to come. As Nunny Keyla Reece describes when she was first diagnosed with mBC, “It was very clear that people had a fear to talk about mBC.  Even for myself, it was a scary thing to talk about.” But knowledge is power. As Nunny describes, “If you don’t talk about it, how will you gain the knowledge?”
