The WBHF mission covers the entire breast cancer continuum from diagnosis through follow up care throughout the life of the survivor with this focus: to make life better for women and their loved ones who are facing this disease.
Areas of Interest
Although the Women’s Breast Health Fund has as its mission funding work aimed at making the lives of survivors and their families better throughout the breast cancer continuum, particular areas of interest include, but are not limited to: patient navigation, the role and support of the caregiver, education and communication tools for both survivors and caregivers, support of the healthcare team, needs of long term survivors, exercise and wellness programs, workplace education, telemedicine, sexuality and spirituality.
While the WBHF does not fund laboratory research or drug trials, applications centered on community-based participatory research are accepted. The Fund will also consider support for capital projects with an imminent start date and deemed clearly relevant to the mission of the WBHF
Note: Priority consideration will be given to applications that demonstrate collaboration with other breast cancer organizations and programs within the five county region.
