Reliable Resources

Resources You Can Trust

We can help online, on paper, or on the phone whether you’re seeking advocacy or treatment, information or simply have questions about breast cancer.

You may find that you have needs other than mentoring or questions about personal issues like financial assistance, wigs, prostheses, transportation, etc. and need reliable, current information. ABCD Mentors and staff are trained to help you connect with both national and community-based resources that can make a big difference during and after treatment.

Below you will find key resources we frequently find helpful. For additional resources such as specific types of breast cancer diagnoses, assistance finding locally-based options, or other resources personalized to your needs, please contact our Helpline at 1.800.977.4121 or helpline@abcdmentor.org
