Hebert Foundation representatives

Thanks to the extraordinary support of the Wilton P. & Effie Mae Hebert Foundation, nearly 35 medically underserved Southeast Texas women received free clinical breast exams and mammograms from the Julie Rogers “Gift of Life” Program.

Gift of Life clientFounded in 1985, the Hebert Foundation strives to further the inspiring legacy of Wilton and Effie Mae Hebert, a family compassionately dedicated to serving the less fortunate in the community. As a lasting testament to their extraordinary influence, the Hebert Foundation continues to bless the lives of those in need.

By making available grants to local charitable organizations, the foundation fortifies the well-being of countless Southeast Texans who benefit from its benevolence. For more than 15 years, the Hebert Foundation has impacted the lives of medically underserved women and men through its continual support of the Gift of Life’s free mammogram and prostate cancer screening programs.

Gift of Life's Charlotte Simoneaux with clientSince 2000, the Hebert Foundation has annually sponsored two Gift of Life van sites, providing nearly 1,000 free mammograms and helping extend the lives of four women who were diagnosed with breast cancer at Hebert Foundation-sponsored sites and navigated through treatment. Additionally, thousands of men have received free prostate cancer screenings at Gift of Life events sponsored by the Hebert Foundation and other generous contributors.

This year the Gift of Life presented its Julie Rogers Corporate “Spirit of Love” Award to the Hebert Foundation for its community leadership and shared mission of providing vital healthcare for individuals in need.

Thank you, Hebert Foundation!
