Florida Affiliate History
Breast Friends of Florida was established in 2009 by two breast cancer survivors. It is operated solely by volunteers and sustained through special events and donations.
Breast Friends offers several support groups as well as one on one support linking a newly diagnosed patient with a survivor of similar occurrence.
Breast Friends partners an outreach program with Holmes Regional Medical Center and Health First Medical Group to give breast surgery patients items that provide additional comfort along with a copy of the Breast Cancer Treatment Handbook.
Since 2009, Breast Friends of Florida has supported more than 500 Brevard County women. The Breast Friends Florida chapter was founded as an affiliate of the national organization. Breast Friends is dedicated to improving the quality of life for breast cancer and other related women’s cancers.
