Forge Breast Cancer Survivor Center began as an initiative of the Women’s Breast Health Fund of the Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham to research breast cancer needs in central Alabama. As a result, Forge was launched in 2016 as a unique, collaborative pilot project of the Women’s Breast Health Fund and the four major health care systems in central Alabama (Ascension St. Vincent’s, UAB, Brookwood Baptist, and Grandview) to meet those needs, providing wrap-around supportive services for survivors and their loved ones.

Forge offers strength by creating personalized survivorship plans and pairing clients with volunteer mentors who have "been there, too" to listen and go to appointments; provides resources such as health and wellness classes, free professional mental health counseling, support groups, and gas cards/Lyft rides for transportation to medical appointments; and works to build a community of survivors and volunteers to Forge a new future together.
