Our services and programs are designed to help you navigate the cancer journey by offering hope, inspiration, and education. Please contact our Director of Programs Yvonne Nydigger at 503.598.8048 or email her at yvonnen@breastfriends.org.

Resource For Family and Friends


Breast Friends has developed several programs to help the patient by teaching family and friends what is important for her journey. We hope you will find the inspiration you need to fully understand the role you can play in her healing, including tips to show you care, one-on-one support and a helpful list of dos and don’ts when communicating with her. Please contact Breast Friends at 503.598.8048 or email mail@breastfriends.org.

Resource For Co-workers


Co-workers can be a valuable source of support for the patient. Small but meaningful gestures can be of tremendous help for women going through a diagnosis of cancer. Sending a card of encouragement, providing a meal or just making a phone call. For more tips to show you care, contact our Breast Friends Office at 503.598.8048 or email mail@breastfriends.org.
