The Women’s Breast Health Fund (WBHF) is a permanent endowment of the Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham which was established in 2009 by a group of anonymous donors. The WBHF will fulfill the donors’ wishes today and forever.
The WBHF is dedicated to making life better for women who are facing breast cancer, their loved ones and the healthcare professionals who care for breast cancer survivors. This mission extends across the continuum of breast cancer care, from the time of diagnosis through follow-up care and every subsequent stage of life.
The WBHF has provided grants to nonprofits in the Greater Birmingham area since 2010. These collaborative efforts led to the Breast Cancer Survivorship Rehabilitation Initiative (BCSRI), which is now branded Forge Breast Cancer Survivorship Center. Forge is an unprecedented collaboration of all 5 major healthcare systems in Birmingham, and launched client services in 2016. Forge assists survivors and co-survivors in taking an active role in their journey with breast cancer by offering support, knowledge, strength and direction. Through Forge all those touched by breast cancer can bond with others to Forge a new future.
