About United4theCause


United4theCause is a non-profit organization founded by Karen White, Ed.D. Her journey to building the organization began May 10, 2011 when diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC) at age 51. In response to Karen's diagnosis she began researching best treatment options and survival strategies. Karen found TNBC to be a new and aggressive form of breast cancer that disproportionately impacts African American women. Tall, short, skinny or fluffy women with big or small girls (breasts) can be diagnosed with breast cancer. Women ages 13 to 91 have been diagnosed with TNBC. Why? No one knows. What we know for sure, TNBC is aggressive. Early detection is the key and if diagnosed, one must take action. Characteristics of TNBC are unique as this breast cancer subtype does not have the traditional biomarkers (Hormones -ESTROGEN, PROGESTROGEN, and HER2) that is typically found in other cancers. Successful treatment for TNBC consists of the 3-PUNCH KNOCKOUT- chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery. After extensive research, meeting with numerous oncologists, surgery, 8 rounds of chemotherapy, and 30 radiation sessions. Karen is a 13 year Triple Negative Breast Cancer Survivor. Praise God!!!


Thankful to God for the miracle of restoring her health, Karen is dedicated to sharing her testimony and serving others as a Cancer Care Minister. She has a passion for educating women on breast cancer awareness, preventive measures via motivational speaking engagements, individual coaching and facilitating a monthly support group. Additionally, Karen is a trained/pending certified Christian Life Coach with a specialty niche in Women - Breast Cancer Survival, Leadership Development, achieving Life Goals. Karen has also served as a Hospital Chaplain under the Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) program.


United4theCause, a faith based breast cancer organization is committed to raising breast cancer awareness, promoting early detection, saving lives and supporting TNBC research studies. United4theCause philosophy of service is built on the By Our Love model (designed by our founder) and the Ministry of Healing book.


United4theCause has a Board of Directors consisting of ex officio Board Members, God-fearing survivors, supporters, and health and administrative professionals. United also has 25 chapters (located from the California North to the Tennessee border) comprised of dedicated members engaged to achieve United's mission by showing servantship: compassionate care, empathetic listening and understanding and total presence to those on the cancer journey.
