Mission Statement

The West Virginia Breast Health Initiative (WVBHI), is a new organization with an ongoing mission – to increase breast cancer awareness and prevention across West Virginia. WVBHI builds on previous efforts in West Virginia to raise awareness and educate West Virginians about breast cancer. Emphasis will be on increasing breast health education, financially assisting breast cancer screenings, facilitating patient navigation, and promoting survivor recognition.

One hundred percent of funds raised through the WVBHI will remain in West Virginia and will continue grants with existing health partner programs.

From the Board President

Thank you for stopping by our website and supporting our WVBHI mission on keeping 100% of the funds we raise in WV staying right here in our mountain state. On average in West Virginia, 6 people will die from breast cancer every week. We hope that you will join us at our May 5th Race for the Ribbon so that we can continue to change that statistic  Thank you to our sponsors, Survivors (like my momma) and supporters who stand with us. You help to make our communities and our state immeasurably richer!

You can make a difference!

Thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate our Survivors, Co-Survivors and honor those who lost their battle.  It was a great day and we could not have done it without our Event Sponsor, Kroger and all of the other wonderful Sponsors, supporters, volunteers that came out to help us raise awareness and funds for breast cancer here in WV!
