Are you a breast cancer survivor? Would you like to become a volunteer P.A.L.S. mentor?

The Breast Cancer Coalition’s Peer Advocates Lending Support (P.A.L.S.) Program provides training for compassionate breast cancer survivors who are ready to offer comprehensive and meaningful support to those who are just beginning the breast cancer journey.

This peer support program was developed to train P.A.L.S. volunteers how to offer information, companionship, emotional support, and encouragement to others affected by a breast cancer diagnosis.
