October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month
The YWCA of North Orange County support the fighters, admire the survivors, honor the taken and never, ever giving up hope. Our Neighborhood Link to Breast Cancer Screening Program gives hope to hundreds of women without health insurance, those who do not qualify for medical coverage or are medically underserved. Please take the time to support our work by donating. Time is equally important. Become a volunteer!
Neighborhood Breast Cancer Screening
Program is Saving Lives
Reyna Crespo is not the type to draw attention to herself but she is a silent leader that helps others get through the most difficult times of their lives, being diagnosed with breast cancer. How did it all begin...with the YWCA of North Orange County.
Many years ago, Reyna came to the YWCA of North Orange County's Neighborhood Link To Breast Cancer Screening Program. She volunteered with us. At one of our screenings, Reyna signed up for a mammogram. Something was not right and her breast cancer was discovered. The staff of the YWCA of North Orange County stayed right by Reyna's side, helping her through her diagnosis, surgery and follow up treatment. Reyna continued to volunteer with the YWCA of North Orange County. She encouraged Hispanic women who were reluctant to get their annual mammogram. She also volunteered at Breast Cancer Survivor Support Groups helping women cope with their diagnosis.
Today, Reyna works for the YWCA of North Orange County as one of our Hispanic Neighborhood Link Navigators. She is known throughout the community and in 2017 was recognized by the Susan G. Komen Orange County Affiliate as their 2017 Most Outstanding Breast Cancer Advocate.
