To pursue our mission, discovering the specific causes of breast cancer and use that knowledge to prevent the disease, The Breast Health & Healing Foundation is pleased to launch the "Theresa Quilt" — a unique online symbol designed to document the impact of breast cancer on millions of women around the world and to raise the funds needed to discover the underlying causes of the disease.
This virtual "quilt" is made up of "patches" or images linked together online. Each image is dedicated to a survivor or victim of the disease — or to women in general.
The "Theresa Quilt" is named for Theresa Garruto Ruddy, Dr. Kathleen T. Ruddy's mother. A breast cancer survivor, she is one of the millions of women around the globe who have inspired us in our mission.
