VIRGINIA BREAST CANCER FOUNDATION
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 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in October 1992, is headquartered in Richmond, VA.
VBCF exists thanks to our many generous individual donors and volunteers. Our goals are to establish the end of breast cancer as a state and national priority, to advocate for the collective needs of people affected by breast cancer, and to educate all Virginians on the facts about breast cancer.
