Between Women is the only advocacy, educational and support organization in California's Imperial Valley devoted exclusively to breast health.  We provide support services for local women undergoing treatment for breast cancer and are dedicated to promoting awareness and education about the disease throughout the community.  Members also advocate with legislators for better laws for breast cancer patients.

History: Between Women was founded in 1997 by Linda Cady and a group of local women to promote breast cancer awareness through education and support for Imperial Valley women and their families.  The first accomplishment of this group was to organize an annual luncheon and fashion show featuring models who were all breast cancer survivors. Two hundred forty people attended on September 27, 1997.  On September 26, 1998, 408 attended the Second Annual Between Women Luncheon and Fashion Benefit.  In the Spring of 1999 and 2000, Between Women sponsored an educational workshop at Imperial Valley College.
Between Women is an IRS.501(e)3 non-profit organization.
