HERS Breast Cancer Foundation was established in 1998 by a team of three dynamic women: a breast health consultant, a fund-raising executive, and a tax consultant who is also a breast cancer survivor. Motivated by their concern for women and the high incidence of breast cancer, along with the lack of breast cancer services, they collaborated to form a unique vision and organization.
2018 marks HERS Breast Cancer Foundation's 20th Anniversary -- two decades of restoring beauty and dignity to breast cancer survivors at an extremely vulnerable time of their lives. Every day we bring hope, empowerment, renewal and support, because every woman deserves to look and feel whole. We support all women healing from breast cancer by providing post-surgical products and services regardless of financial status. HERS is the only nonprofit organization in the Bay Area that provides appropriate products (bras, prostheses, lymphedema garments, and wigs) for breast cancer survivors in a safe, comfortable, and understanding environment.
HERS Breast Cancer Foundation’s services for breast cancer survivors are provided at two locations: their flagship program store at Washington Hospital in Fremont and a smaller program store at Stanford Health Care ValleyCare in Pleasanton.
