The CT Breast Health Initiative, Inc. was founded in 2004 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Their mission is to make a difference locally in the fight against breast cancer through education and research. Their desire is to find a cure for breast cancer in our lifetime. Connecticut is currently ranked 35th in the nation for breast cancer mortality and for a small state, this is a huge challenge. That’s why 100% of the money raised in Connecticut stays in Connecticut. CT BHI has focused all of its considerable energy and resources on education and research, funding forward thinking programs that have yet to qualify for federal grants. And it’s all happening where it matters most – right here at home! To date, CT BHI has awarded $2.3 million to fund important breast cancer research and education projects in Connecticut. Thus far, they have funded 20 researchers at various Connecticut hospitals and organizations. Six have reported on their progress at national meetings and one research project is patent pending. They strive each year to surpass this milestone with the help of their supporters, sponsors and fundraising events.
