About the Cause
Unite for HER was founded in 2009 by breast cancer survivor Sue Weldon to provide breast cancer patients with free access to integrative therapies, services, and resources. Today, Unite for HER supports more than 5,000 members affected by breast and ovarian cancers each year.
Support Patients in Your Community
“Being honored at the Pink Home Run Derby that was sponsored by Maryann’s Pink Warriors and Unite for HER was an incredible experience for me and my family. Seeing the outpouring of love and support from so many in our community meant the world to us. The grant we were gifted was such a blessing. Unfortunately even with the best insurance coverage, out-of-pocket expenses and co-pays that come with a breast cancer diagnosis are significant. The grant helped ease that burden so I could focus on healing.”
Every school or student club/organization that participates in our Students Unite for HER fundraising initiative and raises a minimum of $1,000 is eligible for a monetary grant. This grant is made available to student families and school or club/organization staff who have an immediate family member diagnosed with breast or ovarian cancer within the last 3 years, are experiencing a recurrence, or have received a metastatic breast cancer or recurrent ovarian cancer diagnosis.
