Our mission is to help women who cannot afford to maintain breast health or cope with the expenses
associated with breast cancer.
HOW OUR FUND BEGAN
The breast cancer fund was established in 1992 by
members of the St. Elizabeth Breast Cancer Support Group, now known as PALS for LIFE.
A year after her breast cancer surgery, Sandy Jepson
ran in the New York Marathon and collected $3000 in
pledges. She donated the proceeds to establish the
fund. PALS for LIFE members continue to raise
money through special events to help other women in their fight against breast cancer.
