In June 2015, Tiah Tomlin was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer (or can’t-cer, as she prefers to call it). After recognizing the gaps in resources and supportive services through her own experience, Tiah vowed to be part of the solution. She co-founded My Style Matters, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based out of Atlanta, GA. Her mission is to provide emotional and practical support for cancer patients and their caregivers. Tiah’s efforts to provide strength for vulnerable survivors fighting cancer have been nationally recognized. She was selected to participate in the Cancer Moonshot Summit with former Vice President Joe Biden. She is an advisory team member and chapter leader for HealingStrong™, a renowned network of health-related support groups. Tiah also participates in the Check It Out! program to help educate high school girls about breast care, and she was chosen to be a Young Program Advocate for Living Beyond Breast Cancer.
In addition, Tiah serves on the Patient Advisory Board for AstraZeneca and is a sought-after guest speaker for various community events and conferences nationwide. Tiah was also selected to sit on the steering committee for the 2018 Im-Patient Summit with Eye for Pharma and has joined forces with the National Coalition for Cancer Survivors to advocate for the Cancer Communications and Planning Act on Capitol Hill. She is a proud member of the Diversity Initiatives Steering Committee with the Cancer Support Community. As a result of her advocacy work, Tiah has received a host of awards including G.W. Bush’s Point of Light Award and the Diamond of Hope Award from the Atlanta Braves. Tiah is currently enrolled in a cancer coaching program and has graduated from the Project Lead Institute with the National Breast Cancer Coalition, where she expanded her knowledge about the science behind breast cancer. She has dedicated herself to being a change agent and a community advocate by fighting against cancer, increasing awareness, speaking out about prevention, encouraging people to take action for their health, and giving people hope.
