A Breath of Hope Speaker
Lung cancer carries an unkind stigma that often leaves patients feeling shamed and blamed. A Breath of Hope (ABOH) works to reduce this stigma and Increase lung cancer awareness and education to reduce late stage diagnoses, especially in low income communities where lung cancer is most prevalent.
Speakers are the messengers who carry important information and resources that can save lives to the public. Raising awareness about lung cancer may take place through presentations given at service clubs, faith communities, brown bag lunches at businesses or neighborhood gatherings. Every time vital information is passed to new people, we have made a step forward. In this role, you will work with staff to share information about lung cancer and ABOH to community groups and at community events.
Speakers have the freedom to volunteer as often as they wish and may say no when the requested opportunity doesn’t work for them. ABOH does not require a minimum time commitment.
