What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

A Movement, Breath and Self-care Group for people with Lymphedema

The South Florida Cancer Association sponsors a lymphedema support group in Boca Raton.  The support group provides information, assistance, and support to a group comprised of 49 breast cancer survivors, all of whom suffer from lymphedema, a debilitating illness for which there is no cure.

Population(s) Served

The program is to provide efficient, cost-effective, and quality transportation services for transportation-disadvantaged cancer patients. The SFLCA works with a number of other organizations and governmental agencies to support those in need of our services.

Population(s) Served

The program will promote childhood cancer education and awareness, increase the probability that an afflicted child will be diagnosed earlier, and have a higher likelihood of successful treatment and survival.  Information will be available in printed and online media in 5 languages.  Distribution of the printed material will occur year-round with additional emphasis on distribution during the month of August and continuing through September, Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.  Information will be on display and available in high traffic retail locations throughout the Florida counties of Broward, Miami-Dade, Monroe, and Palm Beach.  The program will serve 579,956 families with children living in South Florida and deemed successful if 90% of the brochures are circulated within the community.  An additional measure of success will be an increase of 25% or more of hits on the corresponding web page and related links.  Retail locations where the material will be available to the South Florida community will be monitored on a twice-weekly basis and web statistics will be gathered daily.  Monitoring will be the responsibility of the program administrator. The SFLCA works with a number of other organizations and governmental agencies to support those in need of our services.

Population(s) Served

The Miami-Dade County Health Department contacted the SFLCA in 2009 seeking assistance from the organization to better provide service to the women of the Miami-Dade and Monroe County communities.

Project SCREEN is a service provided to women who otherwise would be unable to afford a mammogram. This program is essential when one considers the staggering statistics released by the American Cancer Society. The American Cancer Society in its 2010 report indicated that Florida continues to have the second highest incidence rates of cancer in the nation as well as being the second highest in the number of cancer-related deaths. In a 2008 report from the Florida Department of Health, of the 67 counties within the state, Miami-Dade County accounted for over 11% of the state's new breast cancer cases and over 12% of the deaths that resulted due to breast cancer. In the same report, the women of the under-served communities of Miami-Dade County will comprise 18% of the state’s expected new cervical cancer cases and more than 11% of its cervical cancer-related deaths.
 
The population served by Project SCREEN is comprised of women primarily residing within the under-served and economically disadvantaged areas of Miami-Dade and Monroe Counties. We do make these services available to anyone residing within the State of Florida. There are 2,299,811 women residing in the target area. The breakdown by race is: Hispanic 57%, Caucasian 22%, African American 18%, Asian 1%, Native American 1%, Other 1%.

The program provides the client with a doctor's appointment to obtain a prescription for the imaging; the mammogram; a follow up appointment with a doctor if an abnormality is found; and, either additional imaging or biopsy to determine whether further action should be taken.  If the client is found to require treatment, a case worker is assigned who will assist the client to obtain what treatment is necessary.  To alleviate any problems with the participation in Project SCREEN, the client is provided transportation to and from the screening and child care while the client is undergoing examination.

Women who qualify for the program obtain service at little or no cost. The SFLCA works with a number of other organizations and governmental agencies to support those in need of our services.

Population(s) Served

Every Woman Counts provides cancer-related information to the women our underserved communities of South Florida addressing those cancers principally effecting women such as breast, cervical, and ovarian cancer.  Information covers such areas as who is at risk; how to reduce the risks of being diagnosed with cancer; where screening may be obtained; explanations of the various types of treatment; and where additional information may be obtained.  Cancer-related publications in English, Spanish, Haitian Creole, French, and Brazilian Portuguese are distributed in high-traffic retail locations throughout our South Florida communities  This program promotes cancer awareness; educates the public; and provides information concerning local resources for screening, treatment, and additional information.
