Who We Are and Why We're Different

Women and men listening to each other in a support group.You will not face breast cancer alone. The mission of Bosom Buddies of Arizona is to offer our knowledge, our encouragement and our friendship. While there are many fine cancer organizations out there, Bosom Buddies of Arizona is different:  All of the leaders of our support groups are themselves breast cancer survivors and all of our facilitators are volunteers, not paid staff. Bosom Buddies of Arizona supports men and women of all ages and in all stages of breast cancer, along with the caregivers who love them. Our group meetings are held in several locations throughout the Phoenix metro area to provide education, conversations and the support you need right now.

National Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day October 13th

In October, 2009, the U.S. Senate and House voted to support the designation of October 13 as a National Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day. The point of those proclamations was to draw attention to the needs of the metastatic breast cancer community. What is metatstatic breast cancer? Metastatic breast cancer (MBC) -- also called stage IV or advanced breast cancer -- occurs when breast cancer has spread beyond the breast to another organ or organs in the body. In the United States, most metastatic breast cancer develops when the cancer returns after the initial breast cancer diagnosis and treatment.
