We always need more volunteers to staff the office. We provide training, you provide time and compassion. Below is a list of jobs for which we need more volunteers to provide a variety of services.

Being a woman is the greatest risk factor leading to a breast cancer diagnosis.
The Avon Foundation for Women has released its new Check Yourself campaign to increase awareness of breast cancer.
Other general risk factors include increasing age and certain ethnic heritages. In addition, every woman has unique risk factors.
Breast cancer incidence and mortality rates generally increase with age; in the United States 79% of new cases and 88% of breast cancer deaths occur in women ages 50 years and older.
Breast cancer incidence rates are higher in non-Hispanic white women than African American women for most age groups. However:
- African-American women have a higher incidence rate before the age of 40.
- At any given age, African-American women are more likely to die from breast cancer than non-Hispanic white women.
