The National LGBT Cancer Network
Cancer's A Bitch...
...and our annual fundraiser will raise money for us to do something about it.
In NYC, we will be hosting a show on October 19th at La Mama e.t.c. in the East Village, starring Bitch herself and the comedian, Eddie Sarfaty. We will have wine, food, an auction of fabulous goods and services, incredible music and hilarious comedy. It will be fun, entertaining and it is all for a good cause. Please do come.
Tickets are $25- $75 and can be purchased by clicking here
Not in NYC?
We know that cancer's a bitch everywhere and our work reaches across the country:
educating LGBT people about our increased cancer risks and the importance of screening and early detection;
training health care providers to offer more culturally competent, safe and welcoming care; and
advocating for LGBT inclusion in national cancer organizations, media and research.
Please support our work. Even if you can't come to the show, you can participate in the annual fundraising drive by making a donation to the National LGBT Cancer Network by clicking here. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of LGBT people with cancer and those at risk.
Ovarian Cancer Sucks Too
The National LGBT Cancer Network has received a grant to educate lesbians and trans guys about ovarian cancer. We have lost too many of our sisters and brothers to this disease.
For one piece of this project, we are partnering with SHARE, an organization that runs an excellent ovarian cancer hotline (866- 53-SHARE). We want to add trained lesbian and transgender volunteers to their staff in order to better serve members of our community who call.
If you are a lesbian or transgender ovarian cancer survivor, please consider volunteering for the hotline. Our community needs your help and expertise. SHARE will be hosting a training in November in NYC. Trained volunteers can staff the hotline from home or choose to be available only to callers who request a lesbian or transgender survivor to speak with.
For more information, please contact Barbara Krauser, the director of SHARE's ovarian cancer hotline by clicking here.
Not in NYC?
It is so important that LGBT callers to SHARE's hotline have the opportunity to speak with a lesbian or transgender survivor, that SHARE has agreed to individually train hotline volunteers (via telephone) who are willing to help but do not live in NYC. Please consider giving some time to our community through this effort.
Interested volunteers should contact the National LGBT Cancer Network's executive director by clicking here.
