Service Details


Reach to Recovery offers one-on-one peer support and education by matching breast cancer patients with survivors who had same type of cancer. Contact may be either through online chat or by phone.

As survivors, volunteers give patients and family members an opportunity to express feelings, talk about fears and concerns and ask questions of someone who has been there.

Volunteers give support for those who are:
* Facing a possible breast cancer diagnosis, recurrence or advanced-stage breast cancer
* Considering or have had a lumpectomy, mastectomy or breast reconstruction
* Experiencing lymphedema
* Undergoing or have completed treatment, including chemotherapy and radiation

Volunteers are trained to give support and up-to-date information, including literature for spouses or partners, children, friends, and other loved ones. They can also review approved resources that may be able to help with a patient's experience, concerns and questions.
