Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
To ensure, through information, empowerment and peer support that no one faces breast cancer alone.
First and foremost, what has always made us unique among breast cancer organization is the fact the all our peer counselors are breast cancer survivors. That's important, because people with breast cancer want to talk to someone who has lived through what they are going through. Secondly, we're believers in helping survivors grow stronger and build confidence and self-esteem. Experience has taught us that building emotional strength helps people with breast cancer learn to live with this disease. And third, education and sharing our wisdom and knowledge play a big part in our organization. Our commitment to being a 24-hour resource to answer questions and provide support is stronger that ever. Two breast cancer survivors, Ann Marcou and Mimi Kaplan, founded Breast Cancer Network Of Strength over 30 years ago, the name has changed, but the mission hasn't.
