Sonja Dinner is the founder of DearMamma. She launched the initiative after losing a close friend to breast cancer.

Why I started DearMamma

Why I started DearMamma

In 2006, I lost a dear friend to breast cancer. Grief-stricken, I envisaged ways to improve the lives of millions of women around the world. I wanted to help eliminate shame and share medical information about breast cancer and mastectomies.

To deal with this immense personal loss, I made a promise to my friend: in the future millions of women would discover their breast cancer earlier and increase their chances of survival.

Today's technology means we can get medical information to more women than ever, regardless of whether they can read and write, and no matter how remote their location.

We can all create change. Please join us in our effort to save millions of lives around the world.
