Be a Breast Cancer Mentor
If you are a breast cancer survivor who is at least one year out of treatment and want to help another, become a mentor with Survivors Offering Support (SOS). You can guide a newly diagnosed breast cancer patient through a difficult time, giving valuable information, emotional support, encouragement, and a shoulder to lean on. For more information, please contact us.
