It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Convoy of Hope is partnering with the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) once again. Recently, NBCF founder and breast cancer survivor Janelle Hail  visited Convoy of Hope’s headquarters in Springfield, Mo. Convoy of Hope staff celebrated the partnership by wearing pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month and attending informative sessions on breast cancer education.

“The NBCF has served more than 3,000 women at community events across the country this year,” says Ron Showers, senior director of community development. “Women who couldn’t normally afford a doctor visit have been given the opportunity for a health assessment that could save their lives. We’re honored to partner with the NBCF and were more than thrilled to welcome Janelle and Neal to Convoy of Hope.”

The NBCF has provided free life-saving resources and health screenings to women at eight Convoy of Hope Signature Community Events in 2014 and will serve even more later this year.
