Our signature service, Match Mentoring, provides FREE reliable and personalized information and one-to-one support for people affected by breast cancer – patients, families, and friends.
We envision a world where personalized peer support is part of everyone’s quality breast cancer care, leading to a more confident, empowered survivor.
ABCD provides phone-based personalized 1:1 support anywhere. Our Mentors are trained and supported volunteers who have been in Your Shoes®.
Mentors are volunteers who believe that everyone should have support when battling breast cancer. Initial and ongoing training is provided.
Your gift is more than a donation, it provides personalized support for people facing breast cancer. Gifts of any size educate, encourage and empower people to live well through cancer treatment and beyond.
“On the other side of cancer, you stop and question your life. Volunteering for ABCD is a lifelong commitment for me.”
“Before I called ABCD, I was ready to give up. I don’t think I would be here today if I hadn’t called. You have to believe that you can get the help you need to go on. For me, it was God and ABCD. Breast cancer will be a hard journey, but it’s not a closed door.”
“My Mentor taught me so much, especially that talking and listening has real healing power; it takes the burden off.”
“A woman with breast cancer needs to know that she is not alone so she knows the real deal when it comes to getting through it all.”
“I can hold her hand and walk with her on this journey, but her ABCD Mentor has walked in her shoes – that is priceless.”
ABCD Board member, Leslie Waltke, PT, DPT, explained to Tiffany Ogle, co-host of Morning Blend, why the services provided by ABCD are such a critical part of cancer care. Watch the segment.
