Breast Cancer Support: Connecting With Others Who Understand

Going through breast cancer can be tough, especially when you feel like no one truly understands what you're going through. Our community of young survivors is here to help. Share your experiences, connect with others, and find support when you need it most.

Why Finding Support During Cancer is Vital

Physical Benefits

Support groups can provide education on managing physical symptoms such as fatigue, hair loss and weight changes.

Mental Health Benefits

Connecting with others who have had or are going through a similar journey eases anxiety and depression.

Sharing Experiences

Learning about others' experiences and tips can help navigate the road ahead.

The Struggle of Being Pitied

It can be challenging to feel like you're continuously being pitied by familiar faces. Connect with other breast cancer survivors to form a community where you don't have to feel like a victim.

Feeling Like a Normal Person Again

Meeting young people like yourself who have gone through breast cancer can make you feel like a regular person again. Share experiences and laughs that are independent of the disease.

Building a Community of Survivors

Forming a community of breast cancer survivors helps create a support system for those who may feel lost or alone. Discuss your shared experiences and be there for one another.

Benefits of Meeting Others Who Have Gone Through Breast Cancer

Supportive Environments

The camaraderie of walking as a team in Breast Cancer walks creates unity and bonding through shared interests.

Celebrations of Life

Celebrating survivorship during milestones gives hope and supports patients in their journey.

It took me almost a month to look down at my chest after the surgery. I cried and cried for hours in the bathroom, wondering how this could be happening to me. I had always been so confident in my body, and now I felt like a stranger in my own skin. As a mother, I struggled with how to teach my daughter to be confident when I was struggling so much myself. How could I tell her to love herself when I didn't even recognize myself anymore? I was grateful for my surgeon's skilled hands and for getting the cancer out, but I hated the results. When people say that a mastectomy is not a boob job, they are right. The scars and the fact that I will never have sensation again at 34
