In the Media

“Breast Friends is a safe place for us to go to come back to life – which takes different things for different people. For some, it’s crying with those that understand, for some it’s art therapy. For me, the warrior workshops are particularly refreshing. They relax me, build my confidence back up, and provide the comfort of being around women who “see you” and let you know you’re not alone.”

Michelle Witt – December 2022

OUR MISSION For 23 years our programs have ensured that no woman goes through cancer alone.


Breast Friends is a grassroots organization and is a unique resource for women, their families and friends. We have created a community within our programs that helps minimize the fear and isolation of cancer; all while helping them celebrate the joys of life.

FACT No matter who you are or where you live, breast cancer may touch your life.


In 2023, about 297,790 new cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed in women in the U.S. alone. Progress in treatment and early detection has led to improved survival for people of all ages and races, and with all stages of breast cancer. In fact, there are more than 4 million breast cancer survivors in the U.S. today (more than any other group of cancer survivors).

Breast Friends has been a crucial part of my breast cancer healing journey. I've gotten to document myself and my family in the Bald is Beautiful program; I've received support from Ginger and Yvonne being apart of the breast cancer support groups and even received a beautiful wig for free when going through chemo! I can't thank them enough for their continued support!

This year's Survivors Retreat changed my life. To spend a weekend surrounded by such incredible Warrior Sisters when I was so fresh from treatment was the inspiration I had no idea I so desperately needed. It left me uplifted, strengthened and with a new group of women I am lucky to call sisters.
