Support Connection has been very helpful and supportive to me during my breast cancer. Marlene is a wonderful and caring counselor. Thank you so much, and God bless all of you.
I contacted Support Connection because of getting beat cancer. It is very scary and talking to someone that knew what i was facing, made some of the fears and uncertainties less or should I say easier to deal with. This is a club I never expected to be a member of but Support Connection made this train ride a little smoother.
I am a metastatic stage 4 breast cancer fighter. I am blessed to live close to Support Connections office. Which has come in handy when I have felt as though I am loosing control. I have dropped in and always found a 'friend' to listen and help me process my latest crisis. Robin and Marlene are lifesavers! This is above all of the wonderful helpful programs that are offered to cancer fighters. I attend a support group once a month for others like me. There is yoga once a week, knitting, book clubs, nutrition seminars. Many more programs that I have not taken advantage of...but seems to be something for everyone. And then there are the social events where we celebrate our fight. Truly community and love. I'm very blessed to have Support Connection.
I have been a direct recipient of Support Connections services for almost 2 years.
I can tell you.....I wouldnt have made it this far without this organization.
During or after the physical treatment process, there is still the mental and emotional anguish of this horrible disease. This is where the peer counselors come in. The whole organization is supportive to the individual and their families.
Besides the comfort of an understanding team.....they also provide services to us.
Group therapy, activities, events, functions....and of course, "The Walk"....
I would highly recommend this organization to those in need, as well as, those who want to donate, either as a volunteer or monetarily.
They haven't forgotten about us......please don't forget about them when its time to give back.

I am so happy to write a review for Support Connection after 3 years I still have a bond with Support Connection they helped me get through the most difficult time in my life not once but twice first for myself then 2 years later with my daughter we both had Bi Lateral Mastectomy and it was such a pleasure to pick up the phone and talk to a counselor who understood what we where going through and talked with great compassion and understanding .
Not once but twice I had to call Support Connection in 2013 I was diagnosed with breast cancer my daughter gave me the phone number and the day before a BiLateral Mastectomy I called best phone call I ever made Marlene put my mind at ease and I was able to face the surgery the next day with comfort because she told me what I was going to go through and followed me through 7 months of surgeries and Chemo .
In March 2015 my daughter was diagnosed with breast cancer and again I picked up the phone and called my friend yes I consider her my friend and again she helped me through a very difficult time thank you my friend . I help pass the word about Support Connection because they help more then you know as far as I am concerned they are all great doing good work .
I've been associated with Support Connection since my cancer diagnosis and throughout continual treatment over the last 4 years . First, their peer counselor program is outstanding. They're always available to console in the most difficult of times as well as celebrate when upbeat news comes my way. They understand what I'm going through more than anyone else in my life - no matter how supportive my friends and family are.
I've taken advantage of their wonderful programs from yoga, meditation, nutritional counseling, in person and national teleconference support groups to numerous informational webinars related to my disease, treatments and side effects. And all are at no cost to me.
I'm incredibly thankful for everything they've done for me and don't hesitate to recommend them to any woman facing breast, ovarian or gynecological cancer. They far exceed my expectations.
The Support Connection is undoubtedly the most amazing organization supporting women with breast and ovarian cancers! Although the Support Connection is a small organization in number, the staff is overwhelming in their commitment to helping women both locally and nationally. When women are feeling vulnerable, scared and alone with a diagnosis of cancer, the peer counselors (survivors themselves) are there to support and listen. I never cease to be amazed by their energy, compassion and love.
The people from Support Connection are wonderful. When I was in the hospital Marlene came to see me, more then once, and brought me a care package. She also visited me in the rehab. When I got home she called and checked on me and also sent me emails. When I needed her assistance she always available if when she was really busy. She genuinely cares about the people that she comes in contact with thru support connections.
I have advanced breast cancer. Support Connection has been a place of solace and support for me for three years.
