Have you ever wondered what happens inside the National Breast Cancer Foundation tent at a Convoy of Hope event? It’s a fair question since what we give out is harder to quantify than the groceries, shoes or haircuts that some of the other partnering organizations provide. What are we giving out you ask? With the help of our volunteers, we are providing vital breast health educational resources, but ultimately we are providing empowerment. We want every woman who comes through our tent to leave knowing how to be more proactive about her breast health.
One of the gifts we distribute in the tent is a booklet that helps recipients learn how to become more aware of their own breast health. It also includes questions women should ask of themselves and their doctors in order to take a more active role in assessing their personal risk factors. We don’t just pass this booklet out and send guests away, however. Trained volunteers review it with each guest, emphasizing its importance, and connecting them with local resources if they need access to screenings.
The information in this booklet is so valuable that we believe everyone should have access to it. That’s why this October, in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, NBCF is offering our new eBook, What Every Woman Needs to Know, as a free download to anyone who requests it. This book is filled with much of the same great information we provide to Convoy guests in a printed format. Request your free copy today!
We’d be remiss if we didn’t take this opportunity to thank all the volunteers who make our Convoy tent experience such a warm, welcoming and enriching experience for the guests we serve. Thank you for joining in our mission of Helping Women Now®! We couldn’t do it without you!
