Other Ways to Help
How can I volunteer to help My BCS ?
Becoming a My BCS volunteer makes you an “ambassador” for our organization. This means you should be well-versed about My BCS and our basic mission, and also conduct yourself in a professional manner.
Like many non-profit organizations, My Breast Cancer Support depends on our volunteers to help us accomplish our mission. We look forward to working with you and providing you with a volunteer experience that you find rewarding and fun! Our ultimate goal is a win/win, and we will make every effort to work within your areas of interest and strengths. We hope to learn as much from you as you will from us.
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will set up an interview to discuss ways you can help that is beneficial for both the organization and for you. We believe happy volunteers make for productive volunteers!
Throughout the year we fund our programs through many community events. Our signature events are the Celebrate Pink 5K and the Evening by the Sea Gala. Visit our Special Events Page to stay up to date with all of our events for fundraising and volunteering opportunities.
If you or a loved one needs support during your breast cancer journey please reach out to us. We help local breast cancer patients with living expenses, household assistance, wellness programs, family support, comforting gifts, travel scholarships, and more. You are not alone!
A breast cancer diagnosis can be very scary. At any time during your journey reach out to us…we are here to lend a helping hand in any way that we can.
