The Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer was founded on courage, compassion and commitment. Moved by the loss of their dear friend, Mary Sloan, Vera Bradley Co-founders Barbara Bradley Baekgaard and Patricia R. Miller embraced the cause and began raising funds for breast cancer research in 1993. Their mission: To save lives and to put an end to the disease that took their friend and so many more.

Since its inception in 1998, the Vera Bradley Foundation has raised nearly $15 million and has pledged an additional $5 million to the IU team, co-led by American Society of Clinical Oncology President Emeritus George Sledge, M.D. and Dr. Hari Nakshatri, M.D.

“This unique circle of friends has gone beyond our greatest expectations because you believe, like us, that an investment in breast cancer research will pay invaluable rewards in the future.”
Barbara Bradley Baekgaard and Patricia R. Miller said.

Thanks to steadfast support from you, our partners and sponsors, and events like the Vera Bradley Classic Golf and Tennis Tournament and Tickled Pink, the Vera Bradley Foundation has become a nationally recognized organization committed to a future free from breast cancer.
