In the Media

“Breast Friends has saved me emotionally through this stressful time in my life while navigating cancer. Just when I thought no one understood what I was experiencing, I found this incredibly beautiful community of women that get me. We immediately bonded and now have such a special sisterhood.”

Jessica Spencer, 2019

OUR MISSION For over 20 years our programs have ensured that no woman goes through cancer alone.


Breast Friends 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 2022, about 287,850 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 3.8 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.
