About Us

Cade Tolchinsky is an inquisitive, fun loving, adventurous, high school Senior, who attends University School at NSU. Cade enjoys playing basketball and lacrosse and loves to fish and hang out with his neighborhood friends. He also spends a lot of time teaching tricks to Artie, the very special Siberian cat, such as playing fetch and jumping and catching toys. He created this website to share his experience and help others who are looking to learn more about the journey of breast cancer and how to handle it from a young adult’s perspective. The focus of this site originally was to share his book but now, he has decided his purpose is to build a community and share more information other than what is written in the book.
