What to Do Now
Breathe. That’s the first step. And we’re here to help you with the next. The Breast Cancer Coalition is made up of breast and gynecologic cancer survivors, supporters, a caring staff, and a passionate community.
You Are Not Alone
The Coalition has helped hundreds of women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. Our experience and knowledge has led us to create a space where you can come for support and education, to learn about issues impacting the breast and gynecologic cancer community, and if desired, to participate in events and advocacy.
If you have received a diagnosis of breast cancer, you are invited to learn about our free programs from support/networking groups, to writing workshops designed to help you process your experience, to our Healing Arts initiative, classes for your body, mind, and spirit.
The Coalition welcomes survivors from those newly diagnosed, to those who have many years behind them to those experiencing a recurrent or advanced disease.
We offer the following programs for recently diagnosed individuals.
- Schedule a Breast Cancer 101 or Breast Cancer 201. These are one-on-one sessions with a Coalition staff member.
- Join the “Newly Diagnosed / In Active Treatment Group”. This group is a place where individuals can talk about their experiences and ask questions.
- Join Brown Bag Lunch non-traditional, drop-in support group (no RSVP required).
- Working with a Peer Advocate as part of our PALS Project. Our trained peer mentors reach out to those who desire to speak with a survivor who has faced a similar situation.
We also invite you to call our office directly at (585) 473-8177 and ask to speak with someone who can help you. Together, we’ll take the next step. Together we are an informed and empowered community of survivors!
