We would provide you with promotional flyers and information so that you can share with your local community organizations that you are already involved in. This is a great opportunity to make a difference in your community and help make a difference in the lives of those who are dealing with cancer.
Program Promotion includes:
Reach to Recovery - The Reach To Recovery(r) program matches trained, volunteer breast cancer survivors with those facing a breast cancer diagnosis to provide free one-on-one support. Volunteers are carefully selected and are fully adjusted to life after cancer. They talk with patients, giving them and their families an opportunity to express feelings, talk about fears and concerns, and ask questions. Volunteers offer understanding and support in a way that only another person touched by breast cancer can
Road to Recovery - Road To Recovery(r) volunteers drive cancer patients to and from their lifesaving treatments. In donating their time - as little as two hours a month - these trained volunteers help patients focus on getting well and not on how they are going to get to treatment.
