One-to-One Support for People Affected by Breast Cancer

No one should experience breast cancer alone. We know.

How to Support People Affected by Breast Cancer – Mentor, Volunteer, Donate.

Are you a breast cancer survivor who understands the importance of support for those experiencing breast cancer now? Or are you someone whose life has been impacted by breast cancer? Or are you simply someone who cares about others?

If so, you can be part of ABCD’s vision: a world where no one experiences breast cancer without personalized, One-to-One support – a world where no one faces breast cancer alone.

If this distinctive type of breast cancer support sounds important to you, we invite you to become a mentor, volunteer, or support ABCD’s work with an in-kind or financial donation.

What is mentoring?

Mentors are volunteers who have experienced breast cancer and who have completed ABCD’s training program. Each mentor must complete 12 hours of training, which ABCD offers several times a year a year. Mentors are trained in groups of approximately 10 to 20 by professionals in the fields of medicine, law, psychotherapy and communications. They also meet and learn from experienced mentors. Continuing education classes are offered, too. For more information, read about how to become a mentor or Contact Us.  Find the mentor training calendar here.

How can volunteering help?

ABCD’s work depends on the talents and commitment of volunteers. We are able to offer all of our services for free because so many give of their time. Our core volunteer role is that of mentor, yet ABCD needs volunteers in other areas, too. ABCD volunteers participate in breast cancer outreach and education throughout the year. They also provide program support, assist as mentor trainers and play a vital role in the success of special events. Visit our volunteer page for more information.

Can you donate – now?

By design, all of ABCD’s services are free of charge. Our work is a simple reflection of an unequivocal commitment: if you are affected by breast cancer, you should have access to support for free.

All of ABCD’s income is donated from private sources, both financial and in-kind. There is no government support. You can learn more about how we steward our donor’s generosity by visiting ABCD’s organizational overview. Or simply Contact Us.

If you believe in ABCD’s mission and wish to see it thrive, we welcome your gift. Learn how to help by clicking Donate Now.
