Our Mission

Continuing a 20–year tradition of uniting the community through powerful and inspiring speakers while supporting research at VCU Massey Cancer Center, the Women & Wellness Forum Series is one of Richmond’s most anticipated philanthropic and educational events. On February 3, 2015, more than 600 generous community members will have the opportunity to hear a message that conveys hope and positivity to all who have faced challenges. A hallmark of Women & Wellness is the strength and uniting force that comes from making a difference the fight against cancer… a tie that binds us all.

With the historic and elegant Jefferson Hotel as the backdrop for this signature Massey event, Women & Wellness aims to energize, inspire and motivate. Guests at the exceptional breakfast and luncheon will leave ready to join Massey Cancer Center in the fight for better prevention, detection and treatment for women’s cancers.

Who we are

More than forty women serve on the committee for the Women & Wellness Forum Series. The committee is comprised of community volunteers, business owners, and regional leaders who are invested in and dedicated to being partners with Massey in its commitment to eliminating women’s cancers. The committee works year‐round to ensure each year’s event is unique and successful. Their efforts have secured more than $2.5 million for research at Massey.

Women & Wellness attendees are passionate, educated and engaged in the community. For many, the day is a timehonored tradition, much like the sense of philanthropy that has been passed down for generations. For others, it is a gateway to becoming engaged with a cause that is important to the quality of life in our community. For all who attend, Women & Wellness is an opportunity to learn and to give back.

Through the dedication of our partners and the innovation of our research, VCU Massey Cancer Center is transforming the fight against cancer. Together we can transform lives.
