The mission of the Waiting For A Cure Foundation is to raise money to benefit the needs of breast cancer patients, survivors, and their families in Southeast Mississippi. The Foundation knows that approximately 2,400 Mississippi women will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year alone. Many of these women do NOT have a source of payment for their diagnosis much less their treatment. Many women put off necessary screenings until a diagnosis is made in the later stages of breast cancer, making treatment more difficult and more costly. Therefore, Waiting For A Cure allocates funds to provide public awareness through educational programs and materials, to be involved in yearly symposiums, and to help fund and support other programs.
