Adams County Women's Cancer Coalition

Chair: Michelle Shriner, RN, Nurse Navigator, WellSpan Adams Cancer Center 

Formerly the Adams County Breast Cancer Coalition (ACBCC), the Adams County Women's Cancer Coalition honors and supports women and their loved ones who face the struggle with cancer.

The Adams County Women's Cancer Coalition is comprised of women from our community who play a pivotal role in the education and support of women in Adams County. The members all have had personal experiences with cancer - from assisting a loved one with their battle to fighting cancer themselves. Education, screening, and early detection are the keystones to this coalition. The members are very passionate regarding increasing the awareness of cancers that affect women because they know that the key to early detection is knowledge and that the key to survival is early detection.

The coalition's mission is to advance public awareness regarding women's cancers through education, early detection, and action. The group meets this mission through programs that raise funds for the support of medical research, the free screening mammogram fund, the Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Coalition, and other educational programs in Adams County.

Adams County Mammography Help Fund

The Adams County Mammography Help Fund is largely supported by the Adams County Women's Cancer Coalition and WellSpan Health. This fund attempts to decrease the financial burden of a yearly screening mammogram for those women who are over 40 and are uninsured or underinsured. The simple screening process can be completed over the phone and within ten minutes a woman can have her mammogram appointment scheduled.  To participate in this program please call Michelle Shriner at (717) 339-2657.
