Volunteer Profile: Thank You Alice Sanders!

Posted By on April 10th, 2014 at 8:34 am | 105 comments.

Alice SandersI have served on the board of the PBCC for 20 yrs. as the VP, South Central Region which covers Lancaster, Harrisburg, York, Carlisle, Williamsburg and surrounding areas. In this capacity, I have participated as a strong advocate for women diagnosed with breast cancer.  I have personally walked beside women as they journeyed through the diagnosis, treatment and recovery stages of breast cancer. I am one of the original participants in the “67 Women, 67 Counties” photo exhibit. I have provided a voice to support the mission of the PBCC of “Finding a Cure for Breast Cancer” so our daughters won’t have to. 

How did you first get involved volunteering with us?

My first involvement with the PBCC began in 1994 (a year after my diagnosis with breast cancer in May 1993) when I assisted the first executive director with the PBCC Mother’s Day Mammogram Program (a program no longer needed because the PBCC secured legislation for the Healthy Woman Program). I joined the board in October 1994.

What would you say is the best part of volunteering with PBCC?

The best part of volunteering with the PBCC is the broad outreach to women in the State of PA.  I am so proud of the work that we do to advance research and to secure legislation to fight the disease of breast cancer.

Any advice for someone who is thinking about volunteering but hasn’t yet taken the plunge to do so?

Anyone looking for meaningful volunteer work should consider joining the PBCC.  We need more grass root partners to assist us with fund raising to advance research.  We need community voices throughout the State of PA to help us push forward legislation to empower women with up-to-date treatments. The PBCC is unique because we are a “state-wide” breast cancer group representing the 67 counties in PA. 

Any volunteering memory/short story you’d like to share?

My most memorable story that I’ve shared over the past 20 years is: While lying in my hospital bed at Lancaster General Hospital in June 1993, the night before my breast cancer surgery, I saw on WGAL-TV 8 our President, Pat Halpin-Murphy, and the founders of the PBCC exclaiming with fierce determination that they were organizing to find a cure for breast cancer.  The visual image of their fight to advance research for breast cancer was God’s way of speaking to me to help me find a purpose for my diagnosis.  I have used my affliction as a platform to help other women.
