Breast cancer is the No. 1 killer of Latinas in the United States.

This is a fact many organizations are working to change.

One such group, Living Beyond Breast Cancer, has begun accepting applications for its 2017 Hear My Voice: Metastatic Breast Cancer Outreach Volunteer Program.

The Hear My Voice program offers tools and training to help volunteer advocates reach out people living with metastatic breast cancer, hoping to make a positive impact on individuals’ lives in both their “physical and digital communities.”

To reach out to all women, Living Beyond Breast Cancer is looking to recruit a diverse group of volunteers for the program. They are especially looking for Latino and Latina applicants.

This year’s Hear My Voice training will be held April 28-30, 2017, at the group’s annual conference in Philadelphia.

Past activities for volunteers include educating people about metastatic breast cancer through blogs and social media and speaking about their experiences in their local communities.

“Through the program, I forged relationships and friendships that I can’t quite put into words,” according to a participant testimonial on the program’s website. “I consider many a part of my family now. Hear My Voice also helped me build the skills I needed to be more confident and successful with my outreach and advocacy work.”

Apply to for Hear My Voice by March 8, 2017.
