Support & Services

We support women of all ages and in all stages of breast cancer, along with their caregivers as well. We offer our knowledge, encouragement and friendship to let each woman know that she is not alone while she faces this disease. Group meetings are held throughout the Phoenix-metro area and provide support, education, and conversation. (Meeting content may differ by location.)

Bosom Buddies is different from other organizations in that the leaders of all of our support groups are all breast cancer survivors. None of our facilitators are paid, they are all volunteers. We are very thankful to have such an outstanding group.

The facilitators left to right are Dianne Scudder, Teresa Hill, Becky Chase, Lula Stephens, Cele Ludig, Devon Pollard. Not present were Betty Baerg and Patti Lynch.

In addition to support groups Bosom Buddies maintains a 24 hour hotline, 602-231-6648, staffed by trained breast cancer survivors. Volunteers staff health fairs and events throughout the year where they distribute information on breast cancer and answer questions.

Both the office and the facilitators have a supply of breast cancer literature, knitted caps and cloth headcovers for those who have  lost their hair, and heart shaped pillows for those recovering from breast surgery. For further information or to obtain these products ask your facilitator or call our office at 602-265-2776. The Bosom Buddies’ office is located at 11024 N. 28th Drive, Suite #200, Phoenix, AZ 85029.
