Breast Cancer Network of WNY

Support Groups for Breast Cancer Patients and Survivors

Support groups are an important part of survivorship. We know from experience that support and encouragement during treatment can greatly improve your journey to survivorship. We have both professionally led and peer led support groups. All of our support groups offer a casual, personable environment to interact with other feeling and experiencing things similar to you. We currently host and sponsor five different groups, two of which are professionally facilitated. BCN is planning to expand its groups to include different populations of the breast cancer community.
