Tunnell Cancer Center Thanks Lay Navigators for their work in the Community
A Thanksgiving celebration was held to thank the lay navigators from Tunnell Cancer Center for their commitment to the Sharing our Stories, Saving our Sisters (SOS²) initiative, made possible by a grant from the Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Philadelphia affiliate. Dinner was served, and each lay navigator received a commemorative holiday decoration embellished with the pink ribbon symbol.
The lay navigators are volunteers who are breast cancer survivors living in Sussex County. They share their stories of courage and empowerment to spread the word about the importance of getting a mammogram.
Women who are uninsured, underinsured, or have a high deductible on their insurance coverage are eligible for a no-cost mammogram under the SOS² initiative. Call to speak with a registered nurse at (302) 645-3169 for more information.
