Avon Breast Cancer Crusade

Avon Breast Cancer Crusade connects medically underserved women with breast health education and screening services. This website is recommended as a good resource for general breast cancer resources and learning what grants are available for cancer outreach and screening services. Users won't find much actual health information here, but the site does provide a deep list of resources that put users in touch with other websites that do.

Scoring

Ease of Use

This website has a tight focus on providing resources related to breast cancer. The result is a quick and consistent browsing experience. All resources are collected under the "Resources" tab. Unfortunately they're listed in alphabetical order rather than by topic, so it takes some time knowing what each resource is for.

Visual Design

Avon Breast Cancer Crusade is a simple website with a straightforward design. There's a consistent pink-and-white color palette, and at least one image on every page. Although visitors won't find much flare here, the site's design is professional and familiar.

Quality

The resources available for users are all helpful and come from reliable organizations. It is helpful as a collection of resources relevant to breast cancer patients and caregivers. But the collection is rather limited and unfocused. Visitors should consider it a jumping-off point for breast cancer resources and support.

Credibility

The few articles available on Avon Breast Cancer Crusade provide author names, but their credentials are unclear. Nearly all the site's content is links to outside resources. These refer to credible websites in that will benefit a broad audience. Users can expect to find limited but credible resources.

Pros

  1. Provides resources related to a wide range of issues associated with breast disease
  2. No promotions or advertisements cluttering the page, even though this website receives generous support from Avon Products, Inc.
  3. Options to apply for grants and assistance programs

Cons

  1. Limited amount of content compared to similar sites
