Review for Support Connection Inc, Yorktown Heights, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

A diagnosis of breast cancer is terrifying. I felt I could not breath or function. Every daiy I went through the motions of pretending to exist. The horrors of treatment, chemotherapy, multiple surgeries, infections, being permanently disfigured. No one understood and then I called Support Connection. I remember my first call, all I said was I have breast cancer and burst into tears. A warm compassionate counselor, Marlene, came on the phone and it was so incredible supportive. I could speak about my fears with someone who got it. I'm three years out of treatment now but I know they will always be there for me. This is an exceptional organization doing good work and we must continue to support them. I will forever be grateful for them.

Review for Support Connection Inc, Yorktown Heights, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was diagnosed with breast cancer August 15th 2013. The year has been difficult to say the least. I knew however that through my double mastectomy, chemotherapy and reconstruction, support connection would be there for me. They have supported me at my lowest and they understand what the world may not. I never felt judged, my feeling and opinions were valid. They understand that long after the chemo left my body, the true healing begins.
They offer workshops that are amazing. I know I have years ahead of me and long after no one wants to hear about my cancer I know that I can always pick up the phone.
If you have breast or ovarian cancer, please reach out to this wonderful organization. You really need to hear from people who have walked a similar walk. God Bless you...
