Welcome April & Rebecca

It is our absolute honor to welcome two incredible women to The Underbelly team!  As we grow, set new goals and explore new opportunities, we are naturally looking for more help from within the community.  It is important that we continue to seek unique collaborations with those who can help us shine that ever-necessary-light on the darker sides of breast cancer.

April Doyle is an MBC patient whose self described big mouth and passion for writing have gotten her where she is today. She has been living with Stage IV metastasis to bones for the last two years and continues to work when not running after her five year old son. She has a BA in English Literature from CSU Fresno and she’s not afraid to use it. She currently resides in central California where she can be found with her nose in a book or in the vegetable garden. Sometimes simultaneously.  You can find her chronicling her own experiences and more at The C Life.  We couldn’t be more happy to have April as a part of this tribe.

Rebecca Scheinkman is an MBC patient who lives and works in Manhattan. She has passions for trying new interesting brunch spots, experimenting with the latest beauty and make-up trends, and most New York sports teams, especially her beloved NY Rangers. Known to her friends as Becs, she has a Masters degree in Sports Business Marketing from NYU. She is a patient advocate member of the Metastatic Breast Cancer Alliance and a top individual fundraiser for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Becs lives for funny stories in any form. You can follow along with her on Instagram and Facebook.  Rebecca brings such a wonderful sense of humor with her and we are so grateful that she’s part of this endeavor.

Please join us in giving them both a huge, warm welcome!

Melissa, Melanie & Susan, Founders


  • A creative introvert who mistakenly thought she was an extrovert. A seeker of sorts and purveyor of "me toos". When she's not writing - she's loving on her peeps and furbabies. Friendship, nature and a good antidepressant are her lifesavers.
