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.
"Hearing the words, “you have breast cancer” is traumatizing, not knowing what to do next is horrifying. In this age of technology we expect to find answers and a miracle after a few key strokes, instead we find scary statistics and hopelessness. One phone call to Breast Friend’s and the immediate one on one support from Yvonne put me on the right path in my journey, one of hope, compassion, empathy, experience, knowledge and strength. I’m forever grateful."
"Coming to Breast Friend's (at my lowest of lows following treatment), I was greeted with an abundance of care, respect and positivity. No long faces or skeptical cynics in this group! I continue to receive education, fun, support and joy all wrapped in warm and knowing arms. There are not enough adjectives to adequately express my love for Breast Friends!"
"My experience with Breast Friends during my first level of reaching out for information was comforting. Breast Friends is an outreach for women who have no idea what's coming at them. The sound advice and follow up is wonderful...An invaluable resource of knowledge with real women who have been through the experience."
"I love that your program is out there. Sometimes this seems like such an arduous journey. Knowing that you're not alone means so much. Not everyone has a strong support system of friends and family. Even if you do it's sometimes nice to bare your fears and concerns with someone else."
