One in eight women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Even more disturbing, approximately 40,000 women will die of breast cancer this year alone.
The mission of the Women’s Breast Health Initiative (WBHI) is to reduce the incidence of undetected, untreated breast cancer among the some of the most vulnerable in our community: uninsured, underserved women.
That’s what the B4Pink movement is all about.
We want to reach these women, get them screened and ultimately detect breast cancer when it is most treatable and beatable. We want to help them before they “turn pink.”
To support our goal of knocking on 10,000 doors in 2011 to educate women and ensure that all women benefit from the early detection of breast cancer, regardless of their ability to pay, we need your help.
We need your support. Please help us today by donating $25 to fight breast cancer one household at a time. Your generous donation goes directly to helping uninsured underserved women receive mammograms and educational materials about the importance of breast health and early detection right in their own neighborhood.
Introductory Offer - For a limited time with your minimum $25 donation (plus shipping & handling,) we would like to give you a B4Pink pendant to wear to show your support for early detection. This beautiful pendant has been designed to remind women about the importance of early detection.
We hope you’ll wear the pendant proudly. Thank you for your continued support. Your generosity could save a life.

Our 4th Annual Open the Door Reception was beyond successful!
On Friday, March 18, the Women’s Breast Health Initiative (WBHI) held its 4th Annual Open the Door Reception in the elegant ballroom of Shula’s Hotel and Golf Club in Miami Lakes, bringing together the community, business leaders, donors and supporters for a wonderful night of music, food and fun.
As guests arrived this year, they enjoyed complimentary Gekkeikan Sake drinks as they bid on the featured live and silent auction items! Upon entering the beautifully decorated ballroom, guests received commemorative event ad programs, which was an exciting first for us this year. The ad programs, an entitlement for sponsors, included a message from Andrea, program details, bios and photos of all the honorees as well as information on the auction items, sponsors and supporters of WBHI.
WBHI volunteers greeted guests as they browsed the silent auction that featured one-of-a kind items, Heat memorabilia, spa packages, elegant jewelry, luxury travel and dining packages. The silent auction raised critical funds for our cause, and was once again a great success! Miami Jazz artist Jon Saxx worked and wowed the crowd, performing hit tunes on his sax.
In addition to the silent auction, the live auction also exceeded our expectations. As bidders raised the stakes on our feature packages, our lovely Auctioneer, Mayte Padron Cordones kept the momentum going… and the bids rose. Nothing raises money more than a bidding war, and the room was filled with positive energy as our supporters generously bid in support of WBHI.
The night was capped off with the honoree presentations. The always charming Channel 10 Anchor Calvin Hughes greeted the crowd and reminded all the guests about the importance of our cause and why the continued support of the Open the Door event is critical to our success. Founder Andrea Ivory introduced the honorees for the evening, Colodny, Fass, Talenfeld, Karlinsky & Abate, Joshua Young and the Sunland Mark Connection. Guests listened to the honorees talk about their commitment to WBHI. Each of the honorees we recognized has been instrumental in building WBHI to where it is today.
We thank everyone who attended, and hope that our guests enjoyed the evening as much as we did. The funds raised at the event will help us fight breast cancer, one household at a time through door to door outreach.
