Target demographics: Women living with breast and ovarian cancer, as well as their families and friends.

Programs: Women with breast and ovarian cancer, or anyone needing information about these diseases, can come to our office or call us 5 days a week, 9 am - 5 pm NY time, and speak directly with a trained Peer Counselor, a cancer survivor who has traveled the journey already. Calls received after hours are returned the next business day. We have a toll-free number (800-532-4290) for information and support, making this service readily available to anyone nationwide.

Peer Counselors offer information about breast and ovarian cancer, ongoing emotional support, community resources and referrals, connections to other women with similar situations. There are no limits on our peer counseling services. This individualized, free support is available as often as you need it, for as long as you need it, regardless of where you are on your journey through diagnosis, treatment and recovery.

This survivor-to-survivor approach is central to our philosophy; it sets us apart and makes our services both effective and powerful. As one of our Peer Counselors said: “We have walked the walk. We have heard the words 'you have cancer,' felt the fear and anxiety, tried to find some sanity in it all and gone through the tests, the surgeries and the treatments. Just like the women who call, we have held the pieces of a cancer diagnosis together and continued raising our kids, working and maintaining households. We ourselves are women whose lives could not stop for cancer.”

Mission:
Support Connection''s primary mission is to provide emotional, social and educational support services to women, their families and friends affected by breast and ovarian cancer. The support provided enables women to help each other and empowers them to become their own healthcare advocates.

I simply would not be in the healthy, happy place I'm in today without the support offered by Support Connection. They have not only been a great resource, but a true inspiration.

I was diagnosed with breast cancer August 15th 2013. The year has been difficult to say the least. I knew however that through my double mastectomy, chemotherapy and reconstruction, support connection would be there for me. They have supported me at my lowest and they understand what the world may ... more »
