Review for Breast Friends, Tigard, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Alone, having just moved to a new city, I was incredibly scared when I found a lump in my left breast. On my way to work one day I saw a "Cancer Support" sign on an office building. Knowing I had no other support to speak of, I pulled in. When I timidly entered Breast Friends' office and explained my problem, they immediately gave me hugs all-around. Then they visited with me a bit to get to know my story, taking time out of their busy days. Finally, they arranged to go to every single one of my doctor appointments so I would not be alone. They took notes, asked good questions, and assured me that they'd stand by me whatever came. They came to my surgery and wrote me cards of encouragement. As it turned out, I didn't have cancer, but I did find some amazing friends. I decided to volunteer with Breast Friends because they actually do things that help, like going to doctor appointment and giving hugs. Without them, an incredibly scary time in my life would have been unbearable. I'd recommend them to anyone.
