about loudoun breast health network

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.

OUR HISTORY

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.

fiscal reports updated annually

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.”
