You are encouraged to use the materials in this section to raise awareness among parents and caregivers about steps they can take now that may lower a girl’s risk of developing breast cancer when she is an adult.
Most of the materials are in a format that can be adapted locally. As one example, the toolkit for African-American parents and caregivers is a modification of the original materials developed for parents and caregivers. It uses the same text as the original materials however, the African-American toolkit contains photos and other images that are more relevant to African-American parents and caregivers. Another example is the translation of the BCERP brochures and flyers for Spanish speaking populations by BCERP members in Wisconsin.
Individuals and organizations may wish to tailor the wording and/or images in these materials to better meet the needs of local populations. To assist with this adaptation, we have developed a set of guidelines for tailoring the BCERP materials for use in your local community and we provide links to text-only versions of the English and Spanish content. These materials are based on scientific findings and may need review by someone familiar with breast cancer research if altered significantly from the original.
