About Us [cached]

The 1 in 8 Foundation was created by its President and CEO, Ken Vrana, while working with The Garland Appeal.

During his tenure with The Garland Appeal, Ken produced and directed the award winning documentary, "Snow Angels," which followed the lives of three women in North Carolina, all of whom had breast cancer.
While filming, Ken became acutely aware that while hundreds of millions of dollars had been invested in breast cancer research and even though "chasing the cure" had become a popular catch phrase, women were continuing to die at the rate of one every fifteen minutes. With breast cancer affecting one-in-eight women in the United States, something clearly needed to be done. October had also been Breast Cancer Awareness Month for over 25 years and yet Ken discovered that oftentimes by the end of October women were so tired of hearing about breast cancer that they tended to not think about it again until next October.
Understanding that nobody could stop women from getting breast cancer, Ken soon realized that there was something very simple that would make a huge difference; early detection. In fact, if detected early enough, a person actually stands a 93% chance of living out their lives cancer free.
With that information, Ken authored a bill that would make the month of May, Early Detection Month for All Cancers. That bill was signed into law in the spring of 2010.

charity, and it was during this period that Ken also created the 1in8. Breast cancer affects one out of every eight women in the United States, claiming the lives of one woman every 15 minutes.
The 1in8 just seemed like the perfect name for this new organization. Ken also discovered that while hundreds of millions of dollars are being spent on breast cancer research, far less attention was being accorded the area of early detection. If treated early enough, nearly 90% of those women diagnosed with breast cancer, can be saved. Left undiagnosed, the disease is always fatal. While finding a cure for breast cancer is critical, and something we pray for every day, says Ken, hundreds of thousands of lives could be saved if men and women simply found their cancer early enough.
