About Us

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.

About

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 continue to 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.

Precision Medicine

Understanding that everyone's cancer cells are different, our research goes above the standard level of care dissecting a person's specific cancer archetype to find them the right treatment at the right time.

Stage IV Focus

We take an innovative approach by providing solutions for those specifically with metastatic breast cancer, with the goal of becoming a source of hope for all those living with breast cancer in search of treatment options.

Lifelong Advocates

We build educational and community-driven programs, with a heavy focus on engaging the next generation to create shared awareness and grassroots action for sustainable change.

Our Model For Maximizing Impact

Whether making research decisions or developing programs for long-term change, Side-Out takes an advocacy approach to everything we do.

By focusing on the pillars of Education, Community Connection, and Fundraising, we are able to consistently take a well-rounded approach to creating sustainable impact for those living with stage IV breast cancer.

EDUCATION

Education is the first step to advocacy lasting change. Once there is greater awareness and understanding of the cause, why it’s important, and how our research can make all the difference, we can really take strides in achieving our mission.

COMMUNITY

Community connection is the backbone of any great grassroots movement. Involving a community aspect into everything we do increases shared awareness, enhances passion for the cause, and expands the intended impact.

FUNDRAISING

Real impact requires more than voices and time. We turn our advocacy for the cause into action by developing and managing our own clinical research. Funds raised through our programs and campaigns allow Side-Out to continue successfully giving more time to those living with stage IV.

Our Impact Guarantee

We guarantee our programs equip participants with the roadmap to become lifelong advocates for the stage IV breast cancer community, while having maximum impact on stage IV breast cancer through life-extending research.
