Existing NCCC chapters also need volunteers to increase their effectiveness in educational efforts, awareness raising as well as fundraising campaigns. Please feel free to contact any of the chapter leaders to offer help and support.
NCCC Chapter Activities
Local NCCC chapters are established to demonstrate a local presence for the community. Thousands of women across the US are living with a history of surviving cervical cancer. These women as well as their families, caregivers and women currently undergoing cervical cancer treatment often find it part of the healing process to support and educate others about the disease.
This can mean offering meetings for discussion, inviting knowledgeable speakers from the area to speak on the issues of cervical cancer and cancer survivorship, attending health care conferences, educating local physicians and community health centers about women’s need for the highest quality care and even delving into political advocacy, so that financial access to screening and treatment is maintained.
