About HERS Breast Cancer Foundation (HBCF)
The HERS Breast Cancer Foundation was established in 1998 by a team of dynamic women. The founding trio includes a breast health consultant, a fund-raising executive, and a tax consultant who is also a breast cancer survivor. Motivated by their concern for women and the high incidence of breast cancer, along with the lack of specific services for breast cancer survivors, a vision for a foundation was created. HERS Breast Cancer Foundation’s mission is to support all women healing from breast cancer by providing post-surgical products and services regardless of financial status. HBCF is a professional accredited organization, supporting all women with a focus on breast cancer by providing quality products and emotional support to achieve the overall goal of empowering and caring for each client as a whole person.
