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.

Bosom Buddies of Arizona Volunteer of the Year

This morning Bosom Buddies of Arizona Volunteer of the Year Deb Carlson was honored by SimonMed Imaging and ABC15 as a breast cancer survivor with an incredible Story of Strength! Deb was filmed earlier this month at her place of work, Kellis High School, whose students support Bosom Buddies every year with their “Dig Pink” volleyball tournament.  

She was then interviewed this morning by local news personality Terri Ouellette on Sonoran Living Live. Deb used this forum to tell all Arizona women how important it is to get breast cancer screenings and to join a breast cancer support group like Bosom Buddies! In recognition of her great story, Deb was given a $500 gift card by SimonMed Imaging. We think it’s fabulous that Deb, who gives and gives and gives, is on the receiving end of an award she so totally deserves!
