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.
We know that the lists are not complete and would appreciate your help in making them as complete as possible. We try to maintain the accuracy of the lists, but we rely on others to help keep us updated. If you find that we are missing any groups or need to make corrections, please contact us and provide details. We will do our best to make the corrections as soon as possible. Thank you for your help in bringing this service to women in need all over the country.
