I absolutely LOVE Breast Friends and what they do! They are a fantastic non profit that help women who get the awful disease of breast cancer (as 1 in 8 women do) and they show loving, caring and helpful support throughout the harsh uncertain battle these women face.
The innovative idea the Becky Olson and Sharon Henifin had to start this incredible program is so desparately needed and appreciated.
Both Becky and Sharon are Breast Cancer surviors and they know first hand what they are talking about and teaching as they have lived through breast cance and have come out shining examples on the other side! :)

When a friend or loved one is diagnosed with cancer, you feel like there is nothing you can do to help them....or simply don't know what you CAN do. Breast Friends is the solution. They teach friends and loved ones how to be a FRIEND when someone you love is daignosed with cancer. Without Breast Friends, so many of us would be lost.

I have worked with and donated to Breast Friends for several years. I have been a board member and volunteer. This caring organization reaches out to health care professionals, survivors (female & male), families and friends. They provide support during and after the breast cancer journey. Until there's a cure Breat Friends will be there to help.
