About

Unite for HER is a 501(c)3 national nonprofit organization that supports breast cancer and ovarian cancer patients by providing integrative therapies, services, education, resources, and support at no personal cost.

Our Vision

Every person with breast and ovarian cancers will feel the support of a loving community, and will have access to comprehensive education, services, and tools that enrich their health and well-being.

We are committed to being a safe space for people of all sexual orientations/gender identities.

Our History

When Sue Weldon was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2004, she began searching for information on therapies that would complement the medical treatments she was receiving. What she discovered was a lack of easily accessible resources on topics like nutrition, acupuncture, massage, yoga, counseling and other ways for breast cancer patients to enhance their wellness and care for their emotional, spiritual, and physical needs. In 2009 Weldon founded Unite for HER to Help Empower and Restore others diagnosed with breast cancer in the Philadelphia region, and the organization has since grown to provide services, support, and education to those affected by breast and ovarian cancers nationwide.
