“I met with a patient at her ultrasound appointment, and it was an amazing experience. To hear her story about what it’s like to be uninsured and understand how much this medical service means to her…was very moving to me.”
–Valerie, BTTF Volunteer
Breast Treatment Task Force (BTTF) volunteers assisted with its Patient Companion Volunteer Program by accompanying new BTTF patients to their mammogram and sonogram appointments.
Volunteers were responsible for:
- Corresponding with patients before the appointment
- Arriving on site fifteen minutes before the scheduled time
- Helping patients fill out BTTF paperwork
- Most importantly, helping them feel at ease.
Volunteers helped ensure that all BTTF patients feel supported and well cared for throughout the diagnostic process.
