BREAST FRIENDS
December 10, 2010

I was diagnosed with breast cancer 3 1/2 years ago. I immediately went online to look for support. I found breast friends and thought it was local to me in NC. Founder Sharon Henifin contacted me and that is when I discovered they were located in Oregon, all the way across the country. However that did not stop Sharon or breast friends from reaching out to me and providing support in my time to of need. Sharon and I talked for hoursand she helped me through some tough times during chemo. I can only imagine what they do for their local folks. We now have a local chapter in raleigh, NC. Breast friends is a wonderful charity and organization that provides services that are priceless. I hope they have the opportunity to continue to do what they do and expand to help women everywhere. Women diagnosed with breast cancer need them like I needed them. Thanks breast friends for lending your hand to hold through very rough waters.

The Great!

I experience the results of this organization everyday of my life. I am better, stronger and here because I had them to turn to. Medicine may physically help you through cancer, but it is organizations like breast friends that help you mentally and emotionally heal from cancer and cancer treatment.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Expand it to have a chapter in every state and city possible, and clone Sharon Henifin, founder.

MY ROLE:
Client Served & I have offered my hand and ear to other survivors, to pay forward what breast friends gave me.
