Preference is given to nominees who have survived any women's health crisis (breast cancer and other cancers, heart disease, osteoporosis, to name a few), and who have received their treatment at Pardee UNC Health Care. Nomination forms are available online or in person at the Pardee Hospital Foundation office, 561 Fleming St. Deadline for applications is Sept. 1.

An initiative of the Pardee Foundation, Women Helping Women provides financial support for women who are uninsured or under-insured to obtain healthcare services without concern for financial barriers. Since 1998, Pardee Foundation's Women Helping Women program has raised more than $2.7 million in financial assistance for uninsured and under-insured women as well as equipment, facilities and services for women at Pardee UNC Health Care.
