Women of Hope is a group of caring and compassionate individuals who desire to help educate, promote awareness, and provide hope for families currently coping with and dealing with the effects of breast cancer. Hope is the assurance that one day we will be able to live cancer free!
Women of Hope was founded in 2006 and is led by Maria Ashmore, a breast cancer survivor and 2007 Susan G. Komen “Local Hero” of Montgomery. The group consists of an Executive Board, Professional Board and Members-At-Large, who have all in some way been affected by breast cancer. Members of the Executive Board are dedicated to the daily operation of the organization as well as sharing life experiences with both adults and children of breast cancer families; while the Professional Board is dedicated to responding to specific medical and technical aspects of the breast cancer experience.
Our signature luncheon and fashion show is held each October, featuring a prominent breast cancer speaker from our community. Funds raised benefit the mission of Women of Hope to promote breast cancer awareness and education. This program is funded through the sale of tickets as well as community donations. Sponsorships are available for businesses to become a partner with Women of Hope each year. The goal of Women of Hope is to educate, promote awareness, and provide hope and encouragement for families coping with breast cancer.
