I am a 7 year breast cancer survivor and have been attending the camplementary and alternative medicine conferences each year since diagnosis offered by BCO. I have been given lots of great information to help me to reain healthy and to not have a recurrence. Because of the work of this organization I have been able to gradually change the way I eat, the products I use for cleaning and cosmetics and my personal habits to support optimal health. I haven't neede to use other services but I know they also provide emotional and financial support to people undergoing treatment so no one needs to go it alsone in our community when undergoing a breast cancer experience. We are very luck y to have BCO in our area!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Iam a cancer survivor and author of the Cance Kicken Warrior column in The Register Star and Daily Mail. I have referred my readers to Breast Cancer Options for assistance. They provide a wealth of services to their clients. I have received many "thank you" for suggesting them. So often we hear about research, research, but I get the reader who needs personal assistance while going through cancer. They say the staff at Breast Cancer Options treat them with dignity and care. They deserve any award that can bestowed on them. Their work is well-known in Upstate NY' I, myself have received helpful information from them

Breast Cancer Options is an amazing not-for-profit that provides a wealth of resources to women with breast cancer. BCO provides regular education on surviving breast cancer and the latest treatments. BCO also provides people undergoing treatment with free acupuncture, access to financail assist, partners for doctors appointments and any additional resources needed. Breast Cancer Options also provides serval support groups for people with breast cancer. The services that BCO provides are comprehensive and holistic and if you are unfortunate to get breast cancer it is a comfort to know that we have BCO to assist you in every step of the way.
