When I first got diagnosed with breast cancer in mid 2008 I was devastated to learn I needed to lose one of my breasts. To add to that I needed to undergo chemotherapy. I contacted ACS and got nothing but lip service. I heard through a friend that there was an organization that was in Kingston,NY that really wanted to help. I joined one of their support groups (it was the beginning of that particular group). The support, comraderie, knowledge, and friendship saved my life. I have made friends that I will have forever. They have become my "sisters". No matter what, I know that there is a place for me to find out about breast cancer, treatments, and anything else I might need. Thank you Breast Cancer Options, Inc for existing!
I have received much grace from my contact with BCO. Although I am a survivor of another type of cancer, I have attended many of their complementary medecine seminars and have learned so much. There was the doctor from Canada who helped his patients relax during Chemo by playing healing sounds. He demonstrated crystal bowls for us. Dr Carol, a chiropractor and much much more shared with us some of the ways to integrate peaceful meditative states into our day. I have had other contacts with this great and compassionate organization
Our spa refers guests to Breast Cancer Options any time they ask questions related to any cancer matter. With our spa's focus on natural wellness we are frequently asked about self care related to many illnesses. We are extremely careful with our referral and consider Breast Cancer Options one of the most knowledgeable and responsive organizations in the Catskills & Hudson Valley. Our community is very fortunate to have such a dedicated and professional grassroots organization to assist, advise and show compassion to those facing decisions about cancer treatment. Their newsletter is an excellent educational publication for the general public. Breast Cancer Options is first rate! I feel our donations are a great investment. I only wish we could give more!

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
