National HQ: Oregon / SW Washington
Breast Friends was founded in Oregon in 2000. The Oregon Affiliate began as the one and only chapter, but it now has become the first of what we hope are many affiliates. Since our inception, we have helped thousands of local patients and their families. Oregon is the testing ground for all Breast Friends programs and offers all program services. Unique to the Oregon Affiliate is the prosthesis, bra and wig closet. We offer these products free to women who have little or no funds available to purchase them.

Breast Friends of Oregon holds three signature events:
- Joy of Life Gala (Spring)
- Joy of Life Golf Tournament (Summer)
- Survivor and Friends Luncheon (Fall)
- Open House (November)
We all need girlfriends so, in that spirit, Breast Friends offers support in the form of a “Girls Nite-Out” potluck dinner so we can come together, enjoy each others company, and make new friends. Our Washington group does a Girls Breakfast Out.
If you enjoy crafts, share something you’ve created and you just might inspire others to give it a whirl. If you have a favorite book, bring it along and tell us why you like it so much. And, if you like to cook, bring a recipe – and samples, of course! The purpose is simply to get together and connect with each other.
