It was a somber day in 1998 when Nancy Shepard's best friend and nursing colleague, Ellen, informed Nancy that she had breast cancer. Being the extraordinary friend that she is, Nancy traveled through this life altering journey with her friend from the surgical room through her recovery from a mastectomy and reconstructive surgery.

With volunteer leader Nancy Shepard at the helm, IWIN Foundation has distributed $875,000 in grants to breast cancer patients. Recipients have ranged in age from 18 to 90.
"My dedication to the fight against breast cancer began several years ago with the diagnosis of breast cancer to a very good friend. It was at that time that I realized the impact treatment had on a woman. Due to the fatiguing nature of chemotherapy and the physical limitations of surgery, I recognized that even the simple things in life now became stressors, such as lifting their child and cleaning the house."
