Our Mission

The Side-Out Foundation is both a nonprofit and research organization committed to providing life-extending solutions for those with stage IV breast cancer while giving anyone receiving a breast cancer diagnosis hope for more tomorrows.

Breaking the Mold

After Gloria Dunetz was diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer, her son, Rick, and husband, Bryant, started the Side-Out Foundation to challenge the healthcare community. They believed if we could extend the lives of those living with the most advanced stage of breast cancer, stage IV, we could really make a difference for anyone living with breast cancer in search of answers and treatment options.

The obstacles Gloria faced during her stage IV journey inspire the innovation ingrained in every approach we take to support the breast cancer community – from the way we successfully improve patient outcomes, to how we fund research, and even to how we create advocacy for sustainable change.

We find the right treatment, for the right person, at the right time.

We provide opportunities for supporters to achieve maximum impact.

We build lifelong advocates for the stage IV breast cancer community.

Our Model For Maximizing Impact

Every Side-Out program is built with one thing in mind…impact.

After seeing thousands of campaigns led by volleyball teams, we learned that the most impactful campaigns all have three main components tied in. Because of this, our programs focus on education, community, and fundraising to help participants maximize their impact on the cause.

EDUCATION

Education is the first step to becoming an advocate and making lasting change. Once you have a greater understanding of the cause and why it’s important, you’ll be better equipped to educate those around you.

COMMUNITY

Community connection is the backbone of any great grassroots movement. Involving your community in your campaign increases awareness, enhances passion for the cause, and boosts the impact of your campaign.

FUNDRAISING

Real impact requires more than our voices and our time. One of the ways we have taken action is by developing and managing our own clinical research. Your fundraising efforts allow Side-Out to continue delivering results and help us give more time to those living with stage IV.

Our Impact

We guarantee our programs equip participants with the roadmap to become lifelong advocates, while having maximum impact on their communities and on stage IV breast cancer.
