I'm raising money for a cause I care about, but I need your help to reach my goal! Please become a supporter to follow my progress and share with your friends.
I started working at Horizons in September 2018. I was amazed and unaware of the huge need to provide free cancer screening for so many people in our community, right here in Albany. As a navigator, I schedule cancer screening appointments, provide the necessary navigation through the entire process and insure the patient communicates with his primary care physician for test results.
To quote one of my patients, “Mr. Wingfield, if you had not helped me, called to check on me and encouraged me to keep my appointment, I would not have gone for my colonoscopy. I put it off for years because I didn’t want to do it and didn’t have the money to pay for it. Thank you for being there for me”.
The Community Cancer Screening Program (CCSP) was developed in 2008 and research-tested to reduce colorectal cancer screening disparities among low-income, uninsured primary care patients. I’m proud to be a part of this life saving work. Regular colorectal screenings can prevent colorectal cancer or improve your survival outcome. With screenings, doctors can find and remove pre-cancerous polyps during a routine procedure.
As a Horizons navigator, I am assigned to Albany Area Primary Healthcare clinics in East Albany, Baker County, and Phoebe Meredyth. Assisting my patients to have a healthy outcome is one of the biggest rewards in my life.
