MCN addresses cancer in the migrant population through three successful initiatives that work in concert with one another.
LIVESTRONG helps anyone affected by cancer — whether you have cancer or are a caregiver, family member or friend of someone diagnosed LIVESTRONG helps you understand your options, what to expect and what questions to ask. And we offer one-on-one support all along the way.
Clinicians serving mobile populations face unique challenges for care delivery and follow–up. Some of the challenges are high rates of ”no–shows“ and lost to follow–up and limited availability of a complete medical history. Many clinics offer outreach services and mobile clinics to be able to serve their population of focus. Nevertheless clinics are still unable to provide patients with appropriate follow–up, and lose track of them as soon as they move to a new location, especially if there is no Community Health Center in the new area.
The mission of Breast Cancer Network of Strength is to ensure, through information, empowerment and peer support, that no one faces breast cancer alone. Support programs, outreach programs, breast health workshops, wigs and prostheses banks for women with limited resources. 1-800-221-2141 (interpreters in 150 languages). (Formerly known as Y-ME National Breast Cancer Organization)
