Become an ABCD Volunteer
No one should experience breast cancer alone. We know.
Volunteers are Critical to ABCD’s Mission.
ABCD couldn’t deliver on its mission of one-to-one personalized breast cancer support without its volunteers. From our signature mentoring support service to our outreach and education efforts, ABCD’s trained volunteers are our foundation. Most volunteers are breast cancer survivors but they are joined by many who are family and friends of survivors, or simply people who want to have a positive impact on one of the most significant health issues affecting women.
- Mentoring – provide support to people affected by breast cancer.
- Outreach and Education – participate in ABCD’s breast cancer support information efforts through community events in workplaces, worship communities, cultural events and more.
- Program Support – write newsletter articles, help maintain contact lists, host an ABCD presentation – the opportunities are endless.
- Special Event Teams – plan and implement ABCD’s annual celebration of support, Date with a Plate, or help with smaller gatherings ABCD hosts to spread the word about our distinct breast cancer support services.
Who Can Volunteer?
Anyone who has had breast cancer or who has had a close experience with breast cancer can be a mentor. ABCD recommends that mentors be one year from the end of initial treatment before providing this type of breast cancer support. To volunteer in any other capacity, there are no requirements other than completing ABCD’s program services orientation prior to participation in outreach or education events.
