Nebraska Every Woman Matters Foundation
B&C Advisory Committee Application
The Breast and Cervical Cancer Advisory Committee was established by Federal legislation in 1990 and is supported by the Nebraska Health and Human Services Stystem, Office of Women's Health.
The advisory committee has taken a huge step in the fight against cancer. The committee has formed the Nebraska Every Woman Matters Foundation (NEWMF) and is now an affiliated fund of the Nebraska Comunity Foundation (NCF).
The NCF provides affiliated fund status to communities and organizations to achieve non-profit status without forming their own non-profit corporation. Funds received will be designated for cancer treatment costs for uninsured and underinsured women diagnosed with breast cancer, cervical cancer, or precervical cancer through the Every Woman Matters Program.
Vision of NEWMF: Every woman in Nebraska who is diagnosed with breast or cervical cancer has access to quality treatment, education, and rehabilitation for her cancer regardless of age, race, or social economic level.
Mission of NEWMF: To provide financial resources for those women diagnosed with breast and cervical cancer in the Every Woman Matters Program, according to their financial situation, so that no woman goes untreated due to lack of financial resources.
