Breast Friends is an amazing resource for women facing a cancer diagnosis. They offer support, friendship, resources, and hope to women everywhere. Breast Friends works directly with patients within two of our clinics at Northwest Cancer Specialists. We provide their resources to our patients. Becky is a phenomenal speaker and is quite inspirational to women all over the United States. Breast Friends and Northwest Cancer Specialists work collaboratively together to enrich the lives of women everywhere. I manage a practice within Northwest Cancer Specialists and sit on the Breast Friends Board. It is an absolute honor to work with this group of people ! Our patients benefit on many levels from their work! Charmaine Houriet

I volunteered for Breast Friends for a year and grew to appreciate what they do more every day. My Step-mom and well a my mom both passed away because of cance, so I have ties to cancer in that regard. So watching their hearts is action was truely touching for me. Becky and Sharon have a heart the size of Texas when it comes to supporting women with cancer. If there arms were big enough, they would encompass them all at once, but until then they will continue to do it one woman at a time.

Clone Becky and Sharon 12 times over.
