Nonprofit Overview

Mission: The Ellen Shaw de Paredes Breast Cancer Foundation is committed to early detection and treatment of breast cancer through public programs aimed to bring care to all women, professional education to expand the number of mammography specialists, and research focused on early detection.

Programs: During the fiscal year ending june 30, 2014, the ellen shaw de paredes breast cancer foundation provided 331 underserved patients in the greater richmond area with access to free services through the free mammography outreach program. Many of these patients received multiple screening and diagnostic procedures. The program provided access to 773 procedures for patients from a ten-county and four-city area. The paredes foundation hosted four continuing medical education seminars with accreditation from the university of virginia medical school that updated 30 physicians and radiology technologists on the latest advances in breast imaging procedures. These doctors from across the country are now able to serve their patients more effectively. An annual conference in breast imaging was held at the homestead resort, providing an intensive three-day examination of the latest advances in the field delivered by experts from throughout the united states. More than 30 physicians and technicians attended. The foundation supports fellows in their study of the subspecialty of breast imaging. They later return to serve 15,000 to 20,000 women annually in communities around the world. In 2013-2014 the foundation contributed support to five fellows studying the subspecialty field of breast imaging. The paredes foundation offices raised funds to support the early detection programs through events, grants, corporate and individual gifts. Two major awareness events in fall and spring attracted a combined audience of more than 500 participants to learn about the latest breakthroughs in imaging technology. A new event in the early summer brought together a group of area nonprofits and more than 200 attendees to raise $20,000 for the paredes foundations programs.
