About

The program provides emotional and practical support to improve the quality of life for those touched by breast cancer through a proactive peer support model where trained breast cancer survivors provide targeted support, information, and resources. Volunteers are breast cancer survivors who give patients and their family members an opportunity to express feelings, talk about fears and concerns, and ask questions of someone who is knowledgeable and level-headed. Most importantly, Reach To Recovery Volunteers offer understanding, support, and hope because they themselves have survived breast cancer and have gone on to have productive lives. Volunteers who are survivors of breast cancer are matched with and make personal, one-on-one support contacts with people who have been diagnosed with breast cancer or have indications that they may be diagnosed with breast cancer in the near future.
