On average in West Virginia 6 people will die from breast cancer every week. In the past 2 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. Our goal is to have our first statewide grants ready to be applied for at the beginning of 2020.
Thanks to supporters like you, WVBHI has provided over $38,500 throughout the state of 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.
In the spring of 2020, WVBHI will be gifting out our first Misty Bennett’s Seeds of Hope totaling $20,000.00.
