Concerned about Henderson County's alarming breast cancer rate – one of the state's highest – a group of compassionate and concerned women leaders spearheaded Pardee Foundation's Women Helping Women program and fund in1998. Its mission: To provide financial assistance to uninsured women for mammograms, treatments and services at Pardee Hospital.

Since its inception, Women Helping Women has raised more than $1.7 million and helped nearly 1,000 patients. Over the years the program's reach expanded to include financial assistance to patients who are uninsured or under-insured and need health care for breast and other women's cancers, heart disease, osteoporosis and serious illnesses. The WHW Fund also has paid for vital new equipment such as digital mammography units. Today, Henderson County has one of the state's highest breast cancer survival rates.
