Team W.H.I.P. is a 501c3 non profit organization, located in Lanett, Alabama, focusing on Breast Awareness. W.H.I.P is an acronym that stands for Working to Help those In Pink. W.H.I.P. was established after a breast cancer walk was organized by Co-Founders Narfunda Ross and Audrey Bailey-Gilliam in October, 2015. The walk began in West Point, Georgia walking into Lanett, Alabama, and returning to the John D. Hoggs Pavillion in West Point, Georgia. With almost 300 participants, it was an overwhelming response to have a walk annually and begin a local support group. In 2016, Dr. Jatunn Gibson, PhD., connected Team W.H.I.P. with Dr. Nancy Merner, PhD., Associate Professor, Department of Pathobiology, and Betsy Stallworth, RN, with The Gene Machine of Auburn University. From this connection, a partnership was established in August, 2016. Team services Chambers and Lee Counties of Alabama; Troup of Harris and West Point, Georgia. Team W.H.I.P. strives to provide support and raise awareness to the community with the community through programs, events, and sponsorships.
We believe all women can embrace who they are, can define their future, and can change the world.
