Tamika and Friends' Core Programs

House Parties of fiVe (HPVs)
We began this program in 2005, and we’ve loved watching it take off.

House Parties of fiVe (HPVs) mix girl talk with party fun to help women talk comfortably and frankly about their sexual health. An HPV host invites at least five friends over for the afternoon or evening. The host chooses the party theme right for her friends. For some friends it’s poetry, for others karaoke, and for some friends risqué party games are the draw. Whatever the theme, no one feels lectured. At party’s end, many pledge to visit their healthcare providers for Pap tests and/or HPV tests. Plenty of materials are available for friends to pass on to their family and friends.

To keep House Parties of fiVe growing, each year Tamika & Friends promotes a mega HPV Retreat. Hundreds of potential house party hosts attend the event. At the HPV Retreat, Tamika & Friends leaders, along with advocates for women’s health, provide educational resources and, of course, our hard-won knowledge on how to host a dynamite HPV party.

 

Financial Assistance
Gift of Giving

In 2006, Tamika & Friends started the Gift of Giving program, through which cervical cancer patients and survivors receive financial gifts based on need. These gifts can cover medical bills – but can also pay for life’s necessities such as groceries. This program is rooted in Tamika’s own experience. During her treatment, friends gave her $500 to help her through the tough financial days. When things were better for Tamika, her friends would not allow her to pay them back. Tamika paid the gift forward to another cancer survivor. And so the circle continues today.

Tamika & Friends asks supporters to contribute to the Gift of Giving program. These funds go directly to cancer patients and survivors in need.

“Angel” Gift of Love

In honor and remembrance of the mother of our founder, Tamika & Friends has established the Mary Ann Felder “Angel” Gift of Love to assist caregivers.

Caregivers give of themselves to someone facing cervical cancer. They perform the many tasks essential to friends and loved ones going through treatment and recovery. This is a daunting and exhausting – and often over-looked job. Tamika & Friends know from our own experience that caregivers are the keystone to becoming well again.

We ask supporters to nominate caregivers who could use a hand. We provide them with the “Angel” Gift of Love, which takes the form of a gift card. It could be for gasoline, groceries, a spa treatment– whatever that caregiver needs most.

Tamika & Friends asks supporters to contribute to the Angel” Gift of Love program. These funds go directly to caregivers who have been nominated and vetted.

 

Walk to Beat the Clock!
In 2007, Tamika & Friends created a walk to raise awareness of HPV and cervical cancer. We wanted to publicly celebrate women who have survived, remember those who have lost their battle and support those who fight cervical cancer today.

Each year we invite survivors, caregivers and women who are still battling the disease along with many of their friends and family.

These Walks have taken place in Washington, D.C. and New York City with plans to take our Walks to different cities across the United States.

 

Wear Orange Day

January is National Cervical Health Awareness month. Since 2006 Tamika & Friends has sponsored a Wear Orange Day. On this day, participants wear orange, the color of a healthy cervix, to work or school. Complementing their bold wardrobe, participants distribute educational materials to colleagues, friends and family. The event is has spread globally – as far as Egypt. Our official date is the third Wednesday in January, but of course you can choose any day to wear orange and to spread the word.

Support:

Cervical cancer patients, survivors and their caregivers require a tremendous amount of support in order to make it through their ordeal. We provide the services of a licensed therapist free of charge to assist them with any therapeutic support needed. In the past, the support was primarily rendered to those recently diagnosed and those going through treatment. We realized that caregivers have a great need for support as well and have expanded our services to include them also.

Support requests are initiated primarily through our website. The person is contacted by our therapist within 24 hours. The method and frequency of support varies from individual to individual and depends on the severity of the need. Some just need someone to talk to once. Some need weekly or daily sessions. We do not put a limit on how many sessions a person can utilize us for. When they need us, we are there for the duration.
