Survivors Offering Support (SOS)

Whether you’re facing breast cancer and could benefit from the help of a mentor or you are a breast cancer survivor and can offer help to another, SOS is for you. Newly diagnosed? SOS lets you share the breast cancer journey with someone who has experienced your situation first hand. A diagnosis of breast cancer can be overwhelming, but we are here to help. Mentors, all breast cancer survivors themselves, are specially trained to provide knowledge, support, encouragement and a shoulder to lean on.
