Miles of Hope Breast Cancer Foundation
The Miles of Hope Breast Cancer Foundation is a non-profit, 501-c-3 public charity established in March of 2004. The mission of the Foundation is to provide funding to non-profit organizations for support services and outreach for people affected by breast cancer in the Hudson Valley, New York (Columbia, Dutchess, Putnam, Westchester, Rockland, and Orange, Ulster and Greene counties).

Miles of Hope Breast Cancer Foundation was established to fund support services for people fighting breast cancer in the Hudson Valley. The Foundation was started by Dana Effron and Cathy Varunok, two community activists who saw a need for increased services for people with breast cancer.

The Medical Gap Care Fund is available from Miles of Hope for individuals who are experiencing financial hardship due to costs not covered by health insurance while undergoing treatment for breast cancer.
