Arizona Chapter (Phoenix)
Chapter Leader: Shaundra Hall
Chapter Leader since January 2008
After being diagnosed with cervical cancer at 28, my life took an unexpected and amazing turn. I am now a 13+ year survivor and proud to be the Regional Director of the Southwest U.S. for NCCC/ASHA. I support, educate and promote cervical cancer prevention & HPV cancer prevention and awareness and travel the country learning about the latest scientific developments regarding HPV related diseases. In turn, I educate local communities through speeches, informal community forums and corporate wellness presentations. I also sit on the board of directors for Arizona Assistance in Health Care, Inc. as the mission of AAHC is to award grants for non-medical expenses for qualifying patients currently undergoing cancer treatment in the Phoenix metropolitan area. The NCCC and AHSA do such amazing work for patients and caregivers alike, I am honored to be a part of serving them. I am always looking for others who want to support the NCCC’s mission so if you live in the Southwest and would like to make a difference, I would enjoy hearing from you!
