    Making Waves

Feeling Confused, Scared and Overwhelmed?

You or a loved one has been diagnosed with breast cancer. You are confused, scared, shocked and overwhelmed. You don’t want to go on this journey alone.

Join the Journey was created to help you. You need information, support and fellowship. You can find all of that through our programs and services.

If you are looking for a mentor or companion for your journey, someone to provide emotional support and help you navigate through the maze of decisions and questions, our Pink Ribbon Mentors are available to help. You will be partnered with a breast cancer survivor who has similar diagnosis, treatment or concerns to your own.

Winter Work Out

Winter Workout Program

If you are past the immediate crisis and looking for camaraderie with others who have faced similar life challenges, you are welcome at our weekly Winter Work Out or summer Dragon Boat Floating Support Group.

If you aren’t up for physical exercise yet, then you are invited to our monthly support group at Hope Lodge.

If you or a loved one is journeying through breast cancer, we are here to help.

Browse our web site for more information about all our programs and special support services.

We are here for you!
