Breast Cancer Programs

We have many programs and services that can provide support to individuals diagnosed with breast cancer. Our Breast Cancer Connection program pairs individuals diagnosed with breast cancer with trained volunteers who are survivors. Volunteers are phone buddies who provide support at the time of diagnosis or at any point on the cancer journey. Matches for Breast Cancer Connection are made based on age, ethnicity, type of breast cancer and treatment. For more information about Breast Cancer Connection call Sondra Boyd at (440) 442-4433. You may also want to consider our exercise program or gentle movement through yoga or tai chi. Sign up for one of our hands-on cooking classes or connect with one of our staff members to provide you with one-on-one emotional support.

Support for some of our services is provided through the generosity of the Breast Cancer Fund of Ohio.
