Breast cancer survivors sought for hotline volunteers

The Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline & Support Program is seeking breast cancer survivors, both women and men, throughout the state to train as volunteers for the hotline. The Zoom training, each session from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., is being held on four consecutive Mondays beginning March 11 (then March 18, March 25 and April 1).

Volunteers are being asked to commit to all four sessions.

The hotline was established in 1980 by women who had been in a support group and wanted to help others. Today it is the oldest breast cancer hotline in the country.

Volunteer will receive training in the following areas: community outreach, educational presentations, hotline, speaking engagements, publicity and fundraising.

For more information and to set up an initial interview, contact social worker Nina Foley at 516-877-4315 or email at nfoley@adelphi.edu.

Information about the hotline and support program can be found on-line at breast-canceradelphi.edu.

Starting at $1.44/week.
