The Pink Ribbon mentorship program is truly amazing. My mentor provided me with support, knowledge and strength and empowered me to tackle my cancer treatment with a positive outlook. The fact that my mentor had been through a similar experience meant that she understood everything I was going through and was able to provide relevant and personal advice and guidance. I am truly grateful for the program and my mentor for being there for me through it all.

I was diagnosed with MBC in January of 2017 at age 62.  I began working weekly with my mentor in May of 2019.  This program has been a lifeline for me in so many ways.  Sue can relate through her personal experience as a cancer patient and provides an outlet for all those difficult discussions that are impossible to have with friends and family.  Sometimes you can gain a new perspective when you have the opportunity to just say those hard things out loud.  I am truly grateful to participate in this program.
