Each show is three segments separated by two short breaks. We will keep track of when we come in and go out. Don’t worry if we don’t finish content before the break. We can pick up where we left off. The day before the show, we will prepare an outline, based on your talking points, and will email it to you so you can follow along.

We recommend you listen to some of the archived shows to get a feel for our show format and personality.

Breast Friends is a nonprofit organization started by Sharon and Becky so that no woman would feel alone on her journey – and to provide needed resources to those facing the challenge of breast cancer, as well as to their families and friends.
