Our Breast Cancer Screening & Survivor Programs

Early Breast Cancer Screening & Education

  • Breast Cancer Early Detection Services. Uninsured women ages 50 and above can call the YWCA-NOC and receive free Breast Health Services that include mammograms, clinical breast exams, and breast self exam education and training. More than 150 screenings were scheduled for the 2009 year throughout Orange County, and we anticipate screening some 5,000 women. For a copy of our monthly screening calendar, please call  714-871-4488.
  • Breast Self Exam Workshops. We offer free Breast Self Exam (BSE) workshops to women's groups, churches, community groups and in the community at large. This one-hour program helps women understand why BSE is important and how to correctly complete a BSE. Early detection saves lives! Programs are presented in English, Korean, Spanish and Vietnamese. To request a workshop, call 714-871-4488.

Living and Working With Cancer

A diagnosis of cancer brings with it a million questions, and the first and most important source of information is your treatment team. Whatever your questions or concerns, you should never hesitate to share them with your physical treatment team much more productive, and the information you gain will help you make informed decisions about your treatment plan. Call the YWCA at (714)-871-4485 to receive your free copy of the Cancer and Careers Living and Works with Cancer Workbook.
