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 $17 million, co-led by Dr. Hari Nakshatri, M.D. and Dr. Kathy Miller, M.D.
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.
