Stacey Tinianov, Patient Advocate; Patient & Community Engagement Consultant; Breast Cancer Survivor

Following her own breast cancer diagnosis in 2013, Stacey Tinianov left the world of high tech to build bridges in digital health and beyond as a patient and community engagement consultant. She openly shares clinical and emotional details of her own breast cancer diagnosis, treatment and survivorship in the hopes that, as knowledge breeds understanding, we can collectively transform healthcare to meet the holistic needs of patients, caregivers and clinicians. When she’s not working on promoting collaboration; data sharing; empathy; quality of life; health literacy or transforming healthcare from an illness-based system to a wellness-based system, she enjoys helping others in finding their 'outside voice' during times of both wellness and illness. She also enjoys tandem ultracycling with her husband, backyard organic gardening, standing small beside the ocean and trying to keep up with her two teenage children in Santa Clara, CA. Blog | LinkedIn | Twitter | Facebook | Instagram

As the daughter of wine industry pioneer Jerry Lohr, Cynthia spent some of her youth in the vineyards.

A deeply personal story to the Lohr family, this national campaign has helped fund more than 5,000 mammograms for women who would otherwise be unable to afford them, along with services that support women through every step of their cancer journey. Cynthia’s passion for community, philanthropy and the arts has led to numerous leadership appointments in the SF Bay Area, where she resides with her family.

Catherine Thomsen, Program Director, Zero Breast Cancer

After working in Central America with the Peace Corps and USAID, Catherine wanted to address social justice and improve the health and wellness of Latino and other underserved communities. While working to prevent pesticide poisoning in Oregon, she lost a cousin to breast cancer. Then her best friend was diagnosed. They were both young, with small children. As the environmental and occupational epidemiologist for Oregon’s health department, Catherine began to focus on breast cancer. In 2006, she returned to the Bay Area to address environmental risk factors and disparities with the California Breast Cancer Research Program. She joined Zero Breast Cancer as Program Director in 2014 to educate and empower women and girls to use emerging science to reduce breast cancer risk and the chance for recurrence. Catherine received her Master’s in Public Health from Portland State/Oregon Health & Sciences Universities and her B.A. in international relations from Pomona College.

  • Had a great time working with the wonderful Ambassadors to bring up important breast cancer issues. Thanks, Stacey, for sharing your very personal story.
    Most important thing for me is that we can do things to reduce breast cancer risk—starting young! Even if we end up with cancer, we have a better chance of surviving if we are healthier. Let’s do what we can for ourselves, our daughters, our nieces and our communities, because it take a village.
