Outreach Partner: Convoy of Hope
As part of the Breast Health Education Program, the National Breast Cancer Foundation is partnering with Convoy of Hope to provide breast cancer education and early detection services to women at community outreaches across the country. Through this partnership, we will be at Convoy of Hope outreaches educating women about the importance of early detection and connecting them to the resources that are available in their community.
Through this initiative, NBCF has trained over 4,000 volunteers and delivered life-saving services to over 74,000 women on breast self-awareness techniques. At select outreach events, NBCF is able to offer free mammograms to uninsured women through our network of partner hospitals.
Visit ConvoyofHope.org for tour locations and dates.
NBCF partners with community leaders nation-wide to spread breast health education and share early detection resources. Our Community Ambassadors have received breast health training, have the ability to coordinate awareness and fundraising events, and can recruit other volunteers as needed. Community Ambassadors work closely with NBCF staff to ensure they are fully equipped to address the needs of their specific communities. Join us in spreading breast cancer awareness in your area by becoming a Community Ambassador today!
