Take a step in the right direction!

The Witness Project® is a culturally competent, community-based, breast and cervical cancer education program through which cancer survivors and lay health advisors increase awareness, knowledge, screening, and early detection behaviors in the African-American population in an effort to reduce the mortality and morbidity from cancer.

Witness Role Models

Get Involved with The Witness Project® as a Witness Role Model (WRM). A WRM is a breast or cervical cancer survivor who wants to provide their support to people in their community. Their presence as survivors is seen as a blessing and proof that cancer is not a death sentence.

LAY Health Advisors

LHAs are not cancer survivors themselves, but are women who want to work with the project to organize and publicize programs, network with community people, answer questions about cancer screening services and available resources, teach BSE, and encourage preventive health services (mammograms, clinical breast exams (CBEs), pelvic exams, Pap tests, and BSE).

Community Outreach

The Witness Project® is a culturally competent, community-based, breast and cervical cancer education program through which cancer survivors and lay health advisors increase awareness, knowledge, screening, and early detection behaviors in the African-American population in an effort to reduce the mortality and morbidity from cancer.

“In church, people witness to save souls,
