Meet Delphyne– one of the most triumphant breakthrough stories experienced by a CBWW Client to date. Without all of your support, we wouldn’t be able to save the more than 5,000 women who we’ve serviced this year! Your continued support will help us to meet the health needs of 5,000 more women just like Delphyne…
We say it often: the Center for Black Women’s Wellness is “healing communities, one woman at a time.” There are more than 5,000 stories from the women and families we served this year. I would like to tell you one.
Delphyne first discovered CBWW nearly ten years ago at a community health event. In 2014, Delphyne, a business owner and recently divorced from a marriage of over 30 years, found herself uninsured and needing help. She visited our women’s health clinic and discovered that she had breast cancer. After her diagnosis and resulting mastectomy, she encouraged her sister to have a mammogram. Her sister was also
diagnosed with breast cancer and the sisters went through chemotherapy together.
Today, Delphyne credits CBWW for saving their lives: “It’s been a bit overwhelming for me, but again if I hadn’t gotten that mammogram through CBWW, I might never have gotten one. And going without that mammogram, it could have been in a different stage. It could have been the difference between life and death.”
To show her gratitude, Delphyne held a Celebration of Life birthday party this year and asked her guests to donate to CBWW instead of buying her a gift. She plans to do so every year to make sure that other women have access to quality, affordable, life-saving health care.
