AWCAA CELEBRATES 10 YEARS OF SERVICE
Celebrating 10 Years of existence is a big milestone for our organization – The African Women’s Cancer Awareness Association. From a humble beginning in 2004 to a 2012 Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Community Health Leaders Award recipient, among all the other numerous awards we have received over the years, is quite a fete. We did not get there on our own. And so, as we celebrate the Past, Present and Future, we first must thank and give credit to all those who have walked this path with us.
We thank our dedicated staff, volunteers, members, Board of Directors, and Advisory Board, past and present. To the health care providers who provided services most times at no cost to immigrant women, to over 100 medical personnel’s who went on medical missions to sub-Saharan countries to serve the underserved and under privileged, our funders, corporate sponsors and numerous individuals without whose donations we could not survive, we say THANK YOU!!
