Here at the Survivors' Foundation we are determined to help underserved women with breast cancer realize they're Survivors and together we will survive breast cancer.
Survivors' Foundation is determined to build a support system for women who are financially impacted by the burdens of breast cancer treatment. Women who otherwise would not have a chance to receive treatment due to, financial challenges, lack of sufficient insurance, no insurance, and/or loss of employment.
Introducing The Survivors' Foundation
The Survivors' Foundation was birthed on May 18, 2008 by our founder, Antionette "Tonie" Starr, along with four other strong advocates for the fight against breast cancer, which shared a vision of being a support to women with breast cancer.
Our founder shares a personal testimony of the everyday struggles of a breast cancer survivor. Diagnosed with Invasive Ductal Carcinoma Stage 3 breast cancer at the early age of 35, she understands the challenges women with breast cancer face. While undergoing aggressive chemotherapy, radiation and reconstructive surgery, she watched women who were being turned away for cancer treatment due to lack of sufficient insurance or just simply because they couldn’t afford it.
With a burning desire to help in whatever way she could, Tonie made a commitment to provide an avenue where underserved women with breast cancer could turn for resources and support.
The Survivors’ Foundation is committed to the emotional and financial support of underserved women with breast cancer, who are facing or undergoing cancer treatment. Our mission is to help women with breast cancer realize that they are, indeed, survivors.
