A diagnosis of breast cancer brings fear, confusion and worry to both the patient and their families. Each year thousands of women (and men, too) hear the dreaded words, “Sorry, you have breast cancer.” At that moment they often feel scared and alone. Thankfully, there is hope, comfort and understanding available in a support group for breast cancer patients.

These groups are available statewide and offer understanding and support in a wide variety of groups. Some groups are available specifically for the younger women, while others may be open to women whose cancer has metasticized. Regardless of the focus, all of these groups are available to help women and  their families hope and support in a time of need.
