The American nonprofit organization was founded in 2012 by Rihanna and was made in an effort to help and support impoverished communities across the globe.  The singer founded the organization in honor of her grandparents, Clara and Lionel Braithwaite. In 2012, the singer’s grandmother died after battling cancer and Rihanna has set out to honor her life and battle with cancer in the years since. All purchases will include donations to the Clara Lionel Foundation with a minimum donation of $3.75 for each product sold.

Rihanna’s new line spotlights a lesser-known group of “thrivers” who are living with aggressive forms of breast cancer.

Inspired by the stories of a group of women who experienced aggressive forms of breast cancer, the collection was named after them and features health and breast cancer influencers Bianca Muniz, Johanna De La Cruz, Natalie Agustin, and Stephanie Seban.

Speaking about their experiences of battling cancer and modeling for Rihanna’s fashion line, each of the influencer’s opened up about their journeys of finding hope and self-love through cancer. “Sharing the evolution of your journey and your experiences makes other people feel less alone, less of an anomaly. It also raises awareness that if something feels wrong, you should get it checked out,” Seban says in the campaign. “I was diagnosed with breast cancer at 24-years-old. Did not think it could happen at that age so I decided to be really open about my story and I started vlogging my entire story.”

Muñiz also shared her journey, saying that her cancer diagnosis presented new struggled she had not been prepared for but in the long run taught her quite a bit about self-love. “I hated my body for the longest time the most difficult part for me was probably the skin reaction. I prepared for the scars on my chest I prepared for the hairless but it’s so your face the acne and I was not prepared for that so that has been the longest journey to self-love is my skin. it sucks that it took cancer to get there but I’m here,” she said before continuing on to say  “I’m still learning, but I feel like I love myself and I love my body more than I ever have. It sucks that it took cancer for me to get there, but I’m here, and I’m learning every day,” adds Muniz.
