Women Newly Diagnosed are Urged to Contact WJCS Breast Cancer Navigator
Westchester Jewish Community Services (WJCS) is urging women newly diagnosed to contact its Breast Cancer Navigator Program, which provides mentors for help and support through breast cancer diagnosis and treatment. Each mentor is a breast cancer survivor, who can offer the type of support and understanding that only someone who has been down that road can provide. The program allows those newly diagnosed an opportunity to talk about their concerns and questions related to treatment and diagnosis with someone who really understands. It also provides referrals and support. For more information, contact Jessica Cigale, MSW, Breast Cancer Navigator Coordinator, at 914-761-0600 ext. 144. Breast Cancer Navigator is a program of WJCS supported by funding from UJA-Federation of New York.
Founded in 1943, Westchester Jewish Community Services provides comprehensive mental health, developmental disabilities, social services, home health care and community- and school-based programs on a non-sectarian basis to people across the life span, and cultural and economic boundaries. A state-licensed, non-profit WJCS serves 17,000 yearly with programs funded through government grants, UJA-Federation, United Way, foundations, corporations and individuals.
