Volunteer Orientation Session
The Linda Creed Breast Cancer Organization is committed to promoting breast health, fostering the healing process and establishing a public agenda for prevention and cure.
We accomplish this by:
We use our education program to meet with women in the community to help them understand
Linda Creed provides outreach and breast health education to over 4,000 women annually. We attend community health fairs, provide education in the workplace, schools and other community events.
For women with inadequate or no health insurance. Screenings are scheduled at up to thirteen area hospitals. The screenings provide the three parts to good breast health care: Mammogram, clinical breast exam and instruction on breast self- examination.
The program provides necessary diagnostic follow- up for women screened in our mammography program and initial diagnostic services for younger women (<35), or women experiencing symptoms, as recommended by their health care professional.
Outreach program for African-American women providing breast health information, screenings and support services. A community volunteer task force is trained and provides the direct services.
Outreach program to women who partner with women and the transgender community providing breast health information, screening and support services. A community volunteer task force is trained and provides the direct services.
The Patient Assistance Fund fulfils a crucial need to provide non-medical financial assistance to women facing day-to-day hardships while dealing with breast cancer treatment, its effects.
We refer women to appropriate community services such as Healthy Woman, CEED, WIN Program, and Community Legal Services, etc. We also field questions on diagnostic services, treatment, support, etc.
