NBCF provides funding to medical facilities in all 50 states and locally provides funding to Parkland Hospital for Screening & Diagnostic and Patient Navigation services.
Neal and Janelle Hail founded NBCF in 1991 to provide women information, guidance, medical assistance, and support needed during their breast cancer journey and treatment. Janelle’s journey with breast cancer began with her diagnosis 37 years ago. She was 34 years old, married and a mother of three young sons when she detected a lump in her breast through early detection. As CEO, Janelle has successfully led NBCF for 25 years to help women worldwide.
“Thank you to all who have partnered with us and have helped us impact the lives of women and their families worldwide. Together we can accomplish great things in the future,” said Janelle Hail, founder of NBCF.
For decades, Laura Bush has championed key issues in the fields of education, health care and women’s rights. She has traveled to more than 76 countries and has launched ground-breaking education and healthcare programs in the U.S. and abroad. As the Chair of the Women’s Initiative at the George W. Bush Institute, Mrs. Bush continues her work on global healthcare innovations, empowering women in emerging democracies, education reform, and supporting the men and women who have served in the America’s military. In 2012, NBCF became a Collaborating Partner of Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon®, an initiative of the George W. Bush Institute aimed at reducing deaths from cervical cancer and breast cancer in Sub-Saharan Africa by raising awareness of these diseases and inspiring access to quality services to detect and treat them.
