A Word From Our Founder

Irene on basketball court

I am a seven-year breast cancer survivor after being diagnosed with a very rare, aggressive form of the disease in December of 2010. I began the road to recovery after multiple surgeries and 18 months of chemotherapy.

One of the things that helped me through this journey was the support I received from my community. When I moved to the High Country, I noticed that many businesses and members of the public supported breast cancer re-search during October—Breast Cancer Awareness month. My dream was to bring all of the businesses involved in support-ing the breast cancer awareness activities together under one “umbrella”.

My dream came true in 2017 with the creation of the High Country Breast Cancer Foundation.

Thank you for your support,

Irene Sawyer
