Today, and everyday, #B4BC stands behind #breastcancer patients, survivors and all those coping with this disease.
Earlier we previewed B4BC’s documentary chronicling pro snowboarder Megan Pischke’s journey with breast cancer. The film is the first introduction of our growing commitment to this community and is part of our newest program, the #ChasingSunshine Project.
Beginning in 2015, B4BC will begin offering even more valuable content and wellness experiences that seek to improve the quality of life of individuals touched by this disease as they make the transition from “patient” to “survivor.” Unfortunately for most patients, the current model of survivorship care is dictated by their health care coverage and is limited solely to medical appointments. Working hand in hand with Megan Pischke, B4BC seeks to address these needs with a program that promotes healing, enhances long-term survivorship and allows for all it serves to “thrive!”

We are honored to share the first look of B4BC’s documentary, #ChasingSunshine, which follows pro snowboarder Megan Pischke’s journey with breast cancer.
This 9-minute preview is a powerful look inside Megan’s first day of chemotherapy, the rigors of treatment and cold cap therapy – www.vimeo.com/chasingsunshine/filmpreview (link in bio).
It takes courage to share your most vulnerable moments with the world. We hope many of you may feel a deeper compassion for those coping with this disease - Please SHARE in support of their fight, and find more info at www.chasingsunshineproject.org
Today is a sad day for the mountain community—after hearing of the tragic passing of freeskier icons J.P. Auclair and Andreas Fransson in an avalanche in Chile, there was another avalanche that took the life of big mountain snowboarder Liz Daley. Our thoughts and love go out to these legends who were an inspiration to us. Stay safe, friends.

TASTY TUESDAYS // Elena Hight’s Blueberry Chia Jam
Tuesday September 30, 2014
Team B4BC rider Elena Hight’s recipe’s are always our FAV, and this week does not disappoint with her Magical Blueberry Chia Seed Jam! Blueberries are an excellent source of vitamins C and K, manganese and a good source of dietary fiber…AND they are among the fruits highest in antioxidant power, largely due to their many phytochemicals. Chia seeds are the richest sources of lignans—plant compounds that are similar in structure to estrogen and may reduce the risk of hormone-related diseases such as breast cancer. Click the image above to check out Elena’s story on Steller to get some delicious jam you can put on your toast, and well pretty much anything!
Tomorrow is the first day of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and @puravidabracelets is showing their support with their full line of breast cancer bracelets with 20% of proceeds benefiting B4BC’s education, prevention and support programs! Shop the full line at www.b4bc.org/shop!
