One in Nine was established in 1994 by a number of Israeli women who had survived breast cancer. The founders of One in Nine had confronted many challenges in coping with their illness due to a lack of available support and information. This led them to establish a support network comprised of women and professionals who provide legal, emotional and medical assistance which enables breast cancer patients to overcome feelings of shame or embarrassment which often accompany this illness.

One in Nine is the only organization in Israel that specializes in breast cancer which is, mainly, a feminine disease, and that handles all the breast cancer continuum – from early detection to treatment and support of patients with advanced cancer and their families.
