I.W.I.N. Foundation supports women statewide currently receiving treatment for breast cancer by securing and paying for individual services that relieve emotional, physical and financial burdens.
To be an innovative nonprofit organization, built on passion, dedication and integrity, where communities feel called to support our mission. To grow and be recognized as the "neighbor next door" to all Indiana women enduring breast cancer.
The I.W.I.N. Foundation was founded as a 501(c)(3) organization in 2000 with a vision “to be an innovative organization built on passion, dedication and integrity, where communities feel called to support our mission and to grow and be recognized as the ‘neighbor next door’ to all women and men enduring treatment for breast cancer.”
The basis of the I.W.I.N. Program is to give these courageous individuals the strength to endure treatment, empower them to continue their fight against breast cancer, and place them on the path to survivorship.
Having assisted 3 women in our first year and 6 men since our inception, I.W.I.N. now serves over 500 women and men each year.
I.W.I.N. celebrates providing over 1.4 MILLION DOLLARS in services to our recipients throughout the state of Indiana!

"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."
