Women Listen, Inc. is a group of local women dedicated to the mission of supporting women living with cancer by focusing on sharing information, offering emotional support and practical ideas, advocating for people with cancer, and connecting women in meaningful ways. Our mission is represented in our name, Women LISTEN, which stands for: 

Laugh, Inform, Support, Talk, Empower and Network. 

As a grassroots organization, Women LISTEN was founded in 2002 by a group of women cancer survivors, and in September 2004 it became a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization. The organization is registered as Women LISTEN, Inc., an Alaska Corporation (AK#88580-D), and is guided by a Board of Directors, currently with three members. (We are seeking more board members! If interested, email us: news@womenlisten.org). The Program Director is Nancy (Muff) Zelmer, ANP, who facilitates the weekly support group meetings. All board members and program facilitators are volunteers, and Women LISTEN programs are funded entirely by donors.
