This is one of the most well run, dynamic, and truly effective not for profit organizations I have ever seen. This is a group that provides comfort, information and compassion to women at possibly the worst time in their lives. I have such admiration for the staff and volunteers - their caring is so evident - these are not jobs you do for the money. The atmosphere of caring and gentle support is immediately felt whether you are on the phone or walking in the door. I just can't say enough about them.

Support Connection was one of the first calls I made when I was diagnosed with breast cancer back in 2002. It was a very smart call to make. I joined one of their newly diagnosed groups and I can honestly say that it was what really helped me get through my experience. Support Connection was there for me every step of the way. I will never be able to thank them enough for all the support they gave me.

When I was first diagnosed with breast cancer I reached out to Support Connection. They were a safe place for me at a very difficult time in my life. I joined a newly diagnosed support group that met every week, and it literally helped me get through my treatment and the issues that I had to deal with. They were there for me when I needed support the most. I will be eternally grateful to the wonderful people who gave me the love and warmth and support that I needed back then. As a survivor I now attend Support Connection's Survivor Day luncheon every year and celebrate with other survivors. I also walk in their annual fundraiser. They are a wonderful resource for anyone who has to go through the trauma of a breast or ovarian cancer diagnosis.

The Great!

I have had the great honor of sitting with the wonderful women from Support Connection to fully understand the scope of their organization and how they help their community. These women are true heroes. They are the warmest, most caring, and open individuals. I am very thankful to have an organization like the Support Connection in my community, providing key services to patients struggling with breast and ovarian cancer. Many continued thanks for the tough, tough work you women do!

I was diagnosed at age 38 and felt lost and hopeless. The first time I called, the woman who answered the phone introduced herself and said she was a survivor. I immediately felt calmer and more hopeful. They answered all my questions and also told me what questions to ask the doctor. Shortly after a Young Woman's Support Group was formed and these women and the peer counselors (also survivors) became a lifeline. We became close in a way that to this day, no one can surpass. Every time I walk in now, years later, I am greeted warmly, with hugs and kisses. Support Connection is a unique organization that I don't know what I would have done if they didn't exist.

I've had the pleasure of working with this organization for many years now and have enjoyed getting to know the staff. Everyone has a connection to breast and/or ovarian cancer and this is what makes the staff so good at what they do - providing services and programs to women with breast and ovarian cancer as well as their families and friends.

My Name is Crystal Schwer, I am the Founding Director of The Kathleen F Marks Memorial Foundation, we are a local non-profit serving cancer patients in financial need as well as funding cancer research in areas most in need of the funds. We have been established 2 years and The WONDERFUL women at support connection have been kind enough to assist me with many questions I had, guiding me to make our foundation successful, I have attended quite a few Support Connection fundraisers, and they have attended a few of ours as well, they are an extremely helpful, knowledgeable and caring group that i am happy to continue to support and look forward to working with soon!

I still remember those first days after receiving my breast cancer diagnosis. Support Connection was recommended to me by my oncologist's office. My first phone call was met with such kindness and understanding and this has continued through the thirteen years I have been in remission. The women who work at SC give their all to help us cope with the many overwhelming aspects of BC treatment and then provide wonderful therapeutic follow-up through the years. My absolute favorite is Gentle Yoga which has taught me the calming techniques of breath work combined with yoga asanas. Support Connection is such an incredible community service and I am so thankful that it is there for all who need it.
