We provide support, connections and courage for those moving forward in your journey with non-metastatic breast cancer. We know the journey is easier when we don’t feel alone. Connections to others diagnosed with breast cancer can provide insight, hope, and comradeship with people who understand and can relate to the wide range of emotions and fears that you might be experiencing as a newly diagnosed breast cancer patient, one in-treatment, or someone trying to move forward post-treatment.

As we are meeting virtually, anyone from around the world is welcome!
