Mission: Our mission is to make a difference locally in the fight against breast cancer through education and research. Our desire is to find a cure for breast cancer in our lifetime.
Results: To date, CT BHI has awarded over $1.6 million to fund important breast cancer research and education projects in Connecticut. Thus far, we have funded 20 researchers at various Connecticut hospitals. Six have reported on their progress at national meetings and one research project is patent pending. We strive each year to surpass this milestone with the help of our supporters, sponsors and fundraising events.
Programs: CT Race in the Park - Mother's Day Weekend every year
CT Breast Health Initiative is a local charity that raises money that stays local. Even more importantly it raises the spirits of those affected by this disease. Walking in their annual walk was my goal when I was diagnosed 2 years ago. I proudly walked last year holding hands crossing the finish line with another survivor..
Proud to be able to donate to such a great organization! Breast cancer research is very important to me and my family especially in CT! Thank goodness there's a great organization where all the money raised stays right here!
