Vanessa Echols, is the Founder and heart behind Compassionate Hands and Hearts Breast Cancer Outreach, a grassroots non-profit organization in the Central Florida area. The mission of this non-profit is to provide financial and in-kind services to those going through breast cancer treatment.
Vanessa shares the journey behind her organization.....
Founded in September 2007 I started the organization while I was going through cancer treatment myself, I met so many patients who would come to treatment alone and those who were stressed over not having family or friends who could help them with things like transportation to medical appointments, grocery shopping, lawn care, house cleaning, just the basic stuff we take for granted when we're healthy and strong.
I've learned how good you feel when you help others. I've learned what a difference it makes when you work with a group of volunteers who are truly interested in helping others through the organization. They know it's not about them, but about the people we are serving.
All of them [ people she has helped through her organization] have left an imprint on my heart, in their own way.
The ultimate goal is that one day we won't be needed because there is a cure for cancer. In the meantime, the goal is simple: to help as many people as possible who need us.
We are always looking for committed volunteers, those who are willing to make time in their busy lives to help people who are facing one of the toughest battles of their lives.
