Mission Statement

VBCF’s vision is to eradicate breast cancer. VBCF’s mission is to empower Virginians impacted by breast cancer through access, advocacy, education, and community action.


The Virginia Breast Cancer Foundation (VBCF) was founded in 1991 by five women - Phoebe Antrim, Judi Ellis, Patti Goodall, Mary Jo Kahn, and Sherry Kohlenberg - who met in an MCV support group. They were angered by the lack of progress in breast cancer treatment and inspired by a growing network of grassroots advocates across the country. VBCF, established as a 501c3 nonprofit organization in October 1992, is headquartered in Richmond, VA. We provide free Support Kits for the newly diagnosed, metastatic individuals, survivors, and caregivers. We offer free educational materials to anyone in Virginia, speaker presentations, resource tables, and more.

VBCF exists thanks to our many generous individual donors and volunteers.
