What We Do

Every penny of donation that comes into the Gouverneur Breast and Ovarian Cancer Fund goes to help someone who is facing the long road from diagnosis to recovery from breast or ovarian cancer in St. Lawrence, Jefferson, Lewis, and Franklin Counties, New York.

All funds received from donations become direct financial support to someone who is facing a diagnosis of breast or ovarian cancer and needs help during this challenging time; you can have peace of mind that your donations will reach a friend, colleague, loved one, or neighbor.

Our name changed, but not our mission!

Our mission is to alleviate at least some of the financial burden patients face during their treatment and allow them to focus on recovery and healing. Patients receive financial assistance with medical expenses, household expenses, rent, mortgages and car payments as a few examples. Your support goes directly to assist newly diagnosed patients with their recovery.

In 2014, the Gouverneur Business Women's Breast Cancer Walk Fund became a community non-profit, the Gouverneur Breast Cancer Fund, it was established to provide financial assistance to those fighting breast cancer or a cancer that metastasized from that cancer. In 2022, the organization officially became the Gouverneur Breast and Ovarian Cancer Fund, as the name better aligns with our mission.

We assist individuals who live in St. Lawrence, Jefferson, Lewis, and Franklin counties, New York, by providing financial assistance with household, medical, travel, and living expenses during a patient's treatment of both breast and ovarian cancers.


Show your support with all kinds of merchandise displaying our logo on
Mugs, t-shirts, bags, sweatshirts, even golf balls.
