B4BC is the original youth-focused breast cancer education and prevention foundation. Over the last year Mumu and B4BC have become BFFs! We love their commitment to educating young women like all you Mumu Girls on the importance of early detection and how a healthy and active lifestyle can be the best prevention of breast cancer. Whether it be a #MumuMuscle event or sales of exclusive MUcho Love products on our website, we are honored to be contributing to such an incredible organization.

Last October our friend and model Emily was in the middle of her fight with breast cancer. Today she is in the middle of planning her best friend's wedding and trying to book a bike for spin after work.
"I can't believe it's been a year already! I am feeling like myself now, there were times at the end of chemo in December where I wasn't sure if I was ever going to feel normal again. It is amazing how resilient our bodies are and their ability to bounce back is incredible. Now it's like it never happened!! Little things like being to do an hour spin class now blows my mind...there were times I couldn't even walk 10 feet to my kitchen.
So long story short - I feel great now!
I have doctor appointments every 3 months for the next 5 years now so I'm being watched closely. They tell me they are 'cautiously optimistic'. I'll take it!"
Juices and smoothies are a great way to pack in the nutrients and leave you feeling fresh!
