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.


Breast Cancer Deadline 2020
