National Resources

National Online Resources with information on Breast, Ovarian, and other Women’s Cancers list:

Breast Friends is glad to provide the resources on this page, but is not necessarily connected or affiliated with any of the groups or organizations listed.

Resources by State

Breast Friends has compiled a list of local cancer support groups and programs (by state) for women experiencing breast, ovarian, and other women’s cancers.

Breast Friends is glad to provide the resources on the state pages, but is not necessarily connected or affiliated with any of the groups or organizations.

Local support groups can be a great way to get out of the house and talk to others who are sharing the same experience and feelings. Some groups may focus on the needs of the survivor and some the friends and family.  We encourage you to visit more than one group, if the first one does not meet your needs.  Remember, support groups are as unique as the people who participate in them.

Recommended Books

We have assembled a list of recommended books on the subject of cancer, caregiving and other topics related to women and cancer. Breast Friends does not mean to imply the endorsement of any of these books. If you would like to make a recommendation, please e-mail us.
