2020 Board Members
Loudoun Breast Health Network’s Board of Directors is comprised of all volunteers and members of the community who have a special interest in supporting breast cancer patients and their families. Some are survivors; some are friends and family members of survivors and those who did not survive. They all are passionate about helping women now, when they need it most.
Awareness, Education, Support... and Life.
WHO WE ARE
We are a local 501(c)(3) nonprofit, serving Loudoun County residents by bringing awareness, support, resources, and comfort to anyone who has heard someone in a white coat say, “You have breast cancer.” We focus on the person, not just the disease.
We are women helping women and their families. We are cancer survivors; we are daughters, friends and family of survivors — and many of us have been moved to help by someone significant in our lives being diagnosed.
In 2005, LBHN was inspired by Dr. Virginia Chiantella, a Board-Certified Surgeon here in our region who specializes in breast surgery. Dr. Chiantella had a vision to assist those diagnosed with breast cancer and is still actively participating in the organization. Just two years later in 2007, LBHN received its 501 (c) (3) designation recognizing them as a non-profit organization.
WHAT WE DO
We have seen breast cancer upend the lives of many brave women. These women, along with their family members, have extra financial burdens placed on them during treatment. We want to help ease their financial burdens today so they can concentrate on treatment and healing.
Some of the assistance we provide is paying for medical bills, prescriptions, rent/mortgage, transportation costs/car payments, utility bills, groceries and other expenses. We also provide free wigs, mastectomy bras, prostheses, hats, scarves and other head coverings.
While expenses are up since 2018, and 2020 has seen many of our fundraising avenues shuttered, we are still able to efficiently disperse the majority of funds raised directly to LBHN recipients.
LBHN provides support, resources, and comfort to anyone who has heard the words, “You have breast cancer.”
