Dr. Jacque Colbert launches her nonprofit organization Sipping PositiviTea’s Online Fundraiser for Breast Cancer Awareness, the 30 Days of Hope Campaign, which is an initiative to support a great cause.

The campaign continued through April to include providing complimentary lymphatic drainage massages, cleaning services, Sipping PositiviTEA gratitude boxes, and meal vouchers.

Who is Dr. Jacque Colbert outside of your bio?

Beyond the current words you read about life and work to eradicate breast and chest cancer, I’m a high-charging HR Exec by day, passionate exercise and fashion-loving junkie with an eclectic sneaker collection to complement the heels I often wear.

When I’m not in work mode, you can find me cooking- YES, I cook fresh foods several times a week. I also enjoy listening to music, meditating, and watching the news to keep abreast of world affairs.


I love the name of your nonprofit! Can you tell us what motivated you to start it? What was it that led you to select the organization’s name, and what does “Sipping PositiviTea,” mean?

Thank you! Sipping PositiviTEA was curated from the depths of my breast cancer journey, which began in 2008. Simply put, I believe the only choice for me was a positive mindset and attitude that I would be healed to live a life of purpose. I only allowed my mind to center on one thing: I was healed even when the results showed differently. Along those same lines, I fondly recalled several colleagues and friends remarking on how motivated and positive I continued to be in spite of my diagnosis. Without a doubt, the seeds were being planted to exemplify what it meant to Sip Responsibly and Sip PositiviTEA. The truth is, PositiviTEA is a verb. It requires a mindset and a posture of deliberate action each and every day to embrace positivity, irrespective of the outcome. It is not by accident that research also shows that positive psychology gleans positive results.


With Breast and Chest Cancer affecting both women and men at such an alarming rate, you’ve launched the 30 Days of Hope Campaign. Can you tell us more about this powerful movement?

The movement is centered on creating MOVEMENT- A ripple effect to reduce the number of individuals impacted via education and awareness and raise funds for those who need it in those critical times which matter the most.


How can others join in the cause?

This movement requires a head, hands, hearts, and financial funding. We encourage those who understand the challenges associated with breast and chest cancer to help us raise funds by visiting our website and considering sponsorship at our annual signature Pink & Black Fashion Show and Gala. Our always-on donation option is available on our website at

What do you hope our readers gain from both your organization and this interview?

I want to spread the word further about who we are and what we’re about. Our initiatives are not a one-time-only event- This marathon can only be finished when cancer no longer exists. We need everyone to join us with the understanding that any donation, small or large, helps to make a difference. Further, we also want your readers and the community to remember that early detection saves lives, and it is imperative to conduct monthly self-exams.


What are you looking forward to most in 2023?

All things wonderful, but most of all, our annual Pink and Black Fashion Show and Gala, where the goal is to go bigger than we did last year.
