Centre Volunteers in Medicine has assumed the responsibilities of the Centre County Breast Care Coalition. We will continue providing free early detection services to those who qualify in Centre County.

How does a voucher work?
If you are qualified to receive a voucher, one will be filled out and mailed to you. You can use this voucher at your regular OB/GYN or Breast Care Center. The vouchers are only good for one service and expire in 90 days. If these two issues would arise, please call to get another voucher.
Why is it important to get annual screenings?
Early detection is everything!
Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women, except for skin cancers. By getting an annual screening, you can detect a tumor up to 2 years earlier than a typical exam by your doctor. You should start getting an annual screening at the age of 40, unless there is a family history or specially noted by your doctor to start earlier.
How can I support this cause?
Donations towards the voucher program are always welcome!
“Walk the Walk for Breast Health” will be taking place the whole month of August. You can participate from anywhere because this event is virtual! Complete the event in honor or in memory of a loved one who has battled breast cancer.
Register by Friday July 30 if you would like an event t-shirt.
For more information about the event or if you would like to be a sponsor, please contact Darion Shawley, Breast Care Coordinator by calling 814-231-4043 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
