Dolores started with the PA Breast Cancer Coalition as a consultant for the first conference in 1995, and became a full-time employee in 1997.

The experience gained through the mammogram program provided excellent training for her current position as Director of Patient Advocacy. While the PBCC advocates for all women in Pennsylvania through programming and legislative change, Dolores advocates on a one-on-one basis for women who might otherwise fall through the cracks in the system. She helps them navigate their way toward accessing quality medical care. It is a job that is both challenging and rewarding and she feels blessed to work with colleagues who support one another in an atmosphere of mutual respect.

Dolores is also a singer/songwriter, volunteers at hospitals in Philadelphia with the Musicians on Call program, and is an avid Phillies fan.
