Coping

Breast cancer is a diagnosis that cannot and should not be faced alone. You are not alone. You have neighbors, friends, family, professionals, and the community of breast cancer survivors to lean on. Research has shown that women who attend psychological counseling or survivor counseling may have improved outcomes. At the very least, loving support improves one’s quality of life and makes us all feel better. Don’t be shy or nervous, reach out for what you need.

Here is a modest list of services within your community. We do not endorse any on this list but merely recommend you seek assitance, and use this list to find which support service is right for you.
