If you’re ready — raise your hand now and tell us what you are interested in!
Annette Lamers Making A Difference Award
Ward Redman is the recipient of the 2023 Annette Lamers Making a Difference Award. This award recognizes a volunteer who exemplifies strong support and participation.
Ward has a special power – he reaches an outlying community, and reminds us of the importance of reaching and educating men about breast cancer. A long-time volunteer with BCEA, Ward is usually the first one to sign up to volunteer at our events and the first to arrive. Ward is a breast cancer survivor many times over and is one amazing man!
BCEA Co-Founders Leadership Award
Benita Robinson is the recipient of our 2023 BCEA Co-Founders Leadership Award.
Benita Robinson is the recipient of our 2023 BCEA Co-Founders Leadership Award. This award recognizes a volunteer who demonstrates the strong leadership qualities that make BCEA thrive and succeed.
Benita is our “walking and talking” billboard. A former President of BCEA, she is a longtime volunteer and has been an integral part of BCEA’s success. With great passion and grace, she has helped lead us toward a more diverse vision for our organization. Benita reminds us of the importance of reaching into communities with unequal burdens of breast cancer; advocating for those less likely to know where to go for help, and working closely with the Sage Screening Program. It is because of Benita that BCEA is now seen as a valued and important resource in communities of color and indigenous communities.
