 The National Breast Center Foundation is pleased to announce the addition of two new members to its Board of Directors. Ashley Chamberlain and Kara Gorski will be invaluable assets to the mission of the foundation.

Ashley Chamberlain has admired the vision and the work of the National Breast Cancer Foundation since its creation in 2014. With many friends and relatives affected by breast cancer and other debilitating medical conditions, Ashley looks forward to getting involved with the NBCF to help bring patients together with more effective health care solutions through patient advocacy, improved access and diagnosis, better technology and research for a cure. Her hope is that breast cancer will be a completely curable disease in her lifetime.

Professionally, Ashley was most recently a Vice President of Investor Relations at The Carlyle Group, Ashley was responsible for the creation and development of new funds as well as fund marketing and fundraising initiatives.

Kara Gorski, an economist, writer, speaker and breast cancer survivor, shares that her mission is to “encourage women to embrace the perfectly imperfect and create a life they love, leaving impossible standards behind.” Her personal and professional journey have been chronicled by Marlo Thomas, featured on The Today Show, MSNBC’s Morning Joe, and shared by Dr. Jill Biden. Kara is a contributor to the Huffington Post, MSNBC’s Know Your Value column, NOU Magazine, and Cure Diva among others.

Dr. David Weintritt, founder of the National Breast Center Foundation, says “Kara and Ashley bring a wealth of personal knowledge and experience to the foundation.  We are excited to have them join our team and further our mission to provide access for all women to crucial education and medical options for breast cancer treatment.”
