The Licorice Project is a community for everyone affected by breast cancer: newly diagnosed patients, survivors, and their families and friends.
We’re a breast cancer community based in Chicago. Together, women at all stages can find the strength, humor, and friendship they need.
We share resources that provide hope and inspiration, save time and energy, and make it easier to help a friend. Let us do the legwork for you!
Little things can make a big difference. We’re constantly on the lookout for those unexpected treats that can brighten someone’s day!

9,320 people will be diagnosed with breast cancer in Illinois in 2014. They are your neighbors, your child’s teachers and the women you pass on the street. You might otherwise never know them or their struggle.
Join The Licorice Project and you’ll receive access to our private Facebook Group. A special place to make friends, seek local recommendations, and support one another.
The best part of The Licorice Project is the people whose lives are positively impacted by what we do. Here they are, in their own words.
