Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Cancer

Mission: We strive to promote education and disease prevention by informing the public in the state of Tennessee about HPV and cervical cancer.

Programs: The Witness Project is a grass roots community-based, breast and cervical cancer education program. Its goal is to educate African American women about how best to protect themselves from breast and cervical cancer.
Goals: To use survivors of breast and cervical cancer to be trained to go out to the neighborhood churches, civic centers, and other organizations to tell their stories and hopefully encourage women to go to get check-ups. Desired Outcome: Initially, to see at least a 50% increase in women going in to see there OB-GYN and getting yearly Paps and Mamograms. Measuring Our Success: We will have a survey composed of "before and after" questions that the survivors will take to their speaking engagements and have the audience fill out. From this we will gauge how well our message is getting across to the general public. We also plan on working with other health organizations and having volunteers go with some of the Witness participants, to answer any professional questions.

Sometimes the BEST person to tell a story is one that is going through or have gone through a serious illness. This is the case with the foudning of the Cervical Cancer Coalition of Tennessee. When cervical cancer came into the life of this young women she knew it was time to ACT! By telling her story of survival to as many women that she could. The battle is still going on concerning cervical cancer and as long as it does she will be there standing in the gap to try and save as many lives as possible.

The devastation of cancer changes lives forever. Most individuals are very sympathetic to the cause. The Cervical Cancer Coalition is an operation of one person soliciting money for personal gain. While Ms Gunter is a charming seemingly dedicated champion of cervical cancer, she uses others in attempt to find grants and donations that go directly in her pockets. There Is No Cervical Cancer Coalition. There is no board except on paper and the named individuals no longer are affiliated with the organization. It i s amazing that people like this woman can get away with such a scam. Donations go to PayPal and directly in her coffers. I hope others do not give to this scam. I have personal knowledge, it is a name only entity. No roles for the individuals called a board. Only one has hung in there with her; here may be a personal relationship there. There are no documented members other than that one. No accountability for any donations and she becomes visibly angry when asked about structuring a board. The I R S would have a field day with the free money she is pocketing.
