What We Do
West Virginia Breast Health Initiative aims to raise awareness and fund breast cancer programs with an emphasis on increasing breast health education, financially assisting breast cancer screenings, facilitating patient navigation, and providing survivor services. Through fundraising efforts across the state, 100% of the proceeds remain in West Virginia to assist uninsured and under-insured West Virginians.
West Virginia Breast Health Initiative’s vision is to facilitate a community of breast cancer survivors from the moment of diagnoses by instilling them with help, confidence, knowledge of the process and kindness and guidance from those who have already journeyed the path. We collaborate and share with other states that have the common goal of ending breast cancer.
On average in West Virginia 6 people will die from breast cancer every week. In the past 3 years, West Virginia Breast Health Initiative has been able to directly impact the newly diagnosed with education, navigation, funds, survivor kits and someone to personally talk with who has been where they are.
Thanks to supporters like you, in 2020, WVBHI was able to provide over $40,000. throughout WV to increase breast cancer education and awareness, provide mammograms and diagnostics, transportation, lodging, assist with heating and to support breast cancer survivors and their families.
