Nadia Cavner studied business administration at Texas Wesleyan University. Based in Springfield, Missouri, she currently serves as the president of the Nadia Cavner Group and supports various charitable organizations, such as the Breast Cancer Foundation of the Ozarks.

The Breast Cancer Foundation of the Ozarks provides breast cancer patients and their families with a number of services, including emotional support and financial assistance, as well as free mammogram screening programs to help women catch breast cancer in its earliest, most treatable stages. Uninsured or under-insured patients can also apply for the Lymphedema Garment Program, an initiative to provide clothing to women in need. To apply for this program, patients must have developed lymphedema, a condition that involves swelling in the arms or legs, as a result of breast cancer. After filling out a Lymphedema Garment application as well as a Medical Records Authorization, patients should specify what type of garments they need the most. The national Breast Cancer Foundation will contact qualifying patients thereafter for more information and to provide further instructions.
