Horses and Hope


Horses and Hopesm is a project of former First Lady Jane Beshear and the Kentucky Cancer Program, University of Louisville, with the support of the Pink Stable, a committee of Kentucky horse owners, riders, trainers, farm owners, jockeys, and others.  The original mission was to increase breast cancer awareness, education, screening and treatment referral among Kentucky's signature horse industry workers and their families, many of whom are uninsured and underserved.  Special events were also held throughout the Beshear administration to honor breast cancer survivors and to raise funds for Horses and Hopesm.  Today, Horses and Hopesm has been expanded to offer prevention and early detection programs for seven different cancers.  For more information, contact Kentucky Cancer Program at 1-877-326-1134 or e-mail.
