As Delta Cotton Belles enters its 13th Anniversary of caring and supporting women through the Mississippi Delta, our goals and services have grown and expanded with each passing year. Our all-volunteer Board of Directors has adhered to a philosophy of flexibility and innovation to allow for new services and programs, always in response to the unmet needs of women and breast cancer patients within our target community.
Currently, the Delta Cotton Belles is focused on the following key goals:
- To promote breast health awareness through education.
- To provide clinical breast screenings and mammograms for the working uninsured and under-insured in our region.
- To provide services not covered by insurance for individuals with breast cancer.
- To provide support programs for individuals with breast cancer.
Delta Cotton Belles provides services to individuals who are working and are uninsured or under-insured in ten (10) counties throughout the Mississippi and Arkansas Delta including Washington, Bolivar, Humphreys, Grenada, Carroll, Issaquena, Sharkey, Sunflower, Leflore counties in Mississippi and Chicot County in Arkansas.
