Breakaway Ambassadors

Meet the national Breakaway from Cancer® ambassadors. These advocates show their commitment to empowering patients with valuable education, resources and hope..

Patrick Demsey

An ambassador for Breakaway from Cancer since 2007, actor Patrick Dempsey is passionate about providing free support, education and wellness services to anyone affected by cancer. In 2008, he founded The Patrick Dempsey Center for Cancer Hope & Healing at the Central Medical Center- the same hospital where Patrick was born and his mother received her cancer treatment.

Dempsey continues to remain actively involved with Breakaway from Cancer and helps spread the word about the importance of available resources for those whose lives are touched by cancer.

Katherine Kelly Lang

Actress Katherine Kelly Lang lost her father, grandfather and grandmother all to colon cancer and her maternal grandmother to lung cancer. Having witnessed firsthand the struggles that cancer patients face, with Breakaway from Cancer, Lang hopes to help those fighting cancer by providing them with information about where to turn for assistance.

Lang sells a beautiful line of silk kaftans and exclusive Breakaway from Cancer bracelets. A portion of the funds from the sale of her products go to the four Breakaway from Cancer  nonprofit partner organizations.
