Our Social Workers have a Heart of Gold
If you or a loved one is diagnosed with breast cancer you are not alone because of the social workers at the Adelphi Breast Cancer Program--they have a heart of gold. Recognize and celebrate our staff during Social Work Month by making a donation today.
The Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline is staffed by professionally trained and supervised volunteers; most are breast cancer survivors. Social workers offer professional counseling, facilitate support groups, host and speak at educational programs for the community. At local hospitals, bilingual social work services, patient navigation and referrals are provided to guide underserved patients diagnosed with breast cancer. Our social workers are also teaching the next generation by supervising interns studying at Adelphi University. Further, our team networks in the breast cancer community and are a resource to hospitals, patients and community organizations all over New York State.
Without our social workers, we would be unable to support the breast cancer community. Our social work staff is asking for your help so we can continue to provide the hotline 365 days a year, individual and family counseling, patient navigation, support groups and educational events for the breast cancer community. All of our services are completely free and confidential.
Support the Adelphi Breast Cancer Program with a tax-deductible contribution. Every dollar counts and will go towards the following:
- $10 for transportation for a social worker to a local hospital
- $25 for a follow up phone call from a social worker to a hotline caller
- $50 for facilitating a breast cancer support group session
- $100 for an individual counseling session with a licensed social worker
