Your premiere resource for women and families facing a diagnosis of breast cancer, ovarian cancer, or other women's cancers.

Support for Every Step

Regardless of where you are in your journey, Breast Friends has volunteers on hand to discuss your issues with you. We are not licensed counselors, but we are women who have walked in your shoes. We've been down your path, some of us several times. We offer individual support either through one-on-one contact via phone, or in person, as well as support groups customized to meet the needs of our patients.

  • Hello Sharon, I didn't realize how badly I was broken - until I met you! I want to thank you for giving me back my body and more importantly my spirit. I am so proud of myself now. I don't hide beneath my clothes! I am not awkward or self-conconsious. What you've given me is pricelss! Thank you!

    Carolyn from Beaverton - Breast Cancer Survivor

  • When I was in treatment, support from friends, relatives and colleagues was as powerful as any medicine, and Breast Friends helped several of them figure out just what I needed. With all that support, I felt I could conquer the cancer. Thank you, Breast Friends, for being there.

    Nancy Varekamp - Breast Cancer Survivor

  • I so enjoyed listening to you and appreciated the way you validated my feelings... You are a great inspiration to me and so many.

    Sandy Juhola - Cancer Survivor

  • I just wanted to say thank you for all of your support, kind wishes, and for sending me such a lovely “Welcome to the Sisterhood” packet. I love the hat, the hankie and especially the wonderful list of ideas that you included for family and friends.
