About

The Witness Project

Our nonprofit organization is a culturally competent, community-based breast and cervical cancer education program. The purpose of the Witness Project is to educate and raise awareness about breast and cervical cancer and to increase participation in preventive screenings among women. The program uses cancer survivors and lay health advisors to increase awareness.

This program empowers women to take responsibility for their health care needs. It demonstrates that a diagnosis of cancer is neither a death sentence nor a punishment, and provides accurate, personal information about early detection and treatment.

Our Goals

The immediate goal is to increase the number of women using breast and cervical cancer screening programs.

The long-term goal is to reduce death and sickness from breast and cervical cancer by increasing the number of women who use breast self-examinations, clinical breast examinations, mammograms, pelvic exams, and pap smears to find cancer early.

Our On-Going Goals

  • To empower men & women to take responsibility for their health needs.
  • To address the fears and beliefs many women & men hold about cancer.
  • To demonstrate that a diagnosis of cancer is neither a death sentence nor a punishment.
  • To provide accurate, personal information about early detection and treatment.
  • To demonstrate that it’s okay to talk about cancer.
  • To reassure men & women that God is still with them.
  • To emphasize that you have a right and a duty to take care of yourself.
