    The ask
    I am reaching out to the IAW Network of tremendous  leaders as I am in need of volunteers to join as a Board member. As the Chief Visionary, Founder and CEO, I am looking for an Accountant, an Attorney, Clinical Specialists and those with experience in grant writing and fundraising.


    About us

    The Breast Cancer Survivorship Foundation is a tax-exempt, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization (tax ID 87-1998990). We are  dedicated to helping uninsured or under-insured women, prevent and survive a diagnosis of breast cancer. We provide education on early detection to find breast cancer at its earliest, treatable stages. We are educating women on screening options. We coach on how to advocate for the best outcome and we provide support.

    Background
    • 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime
    • Every 15 seconds, somewhere in the world, a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer
    • African American woman are 42% more likely to die from the disease. 
    • Breast cancer is 95% curable, when detected early. Early detection saves lives.
    Our vision is to increase the number of breast cancer survivors, targeting women between the ages  25 and 85.
    If you want to have a local impact, have a passion for being a change agent, have an interest in making a difference and have a few hours a month, we need you!

    Women in Virginia are ideal, however anyone wanting to be considered can email their resume and desire to join directly to me. I will follow up with an invitation to a 45 minute Zoom Presentation that includes time for Q&A.
