Snapshots of Hope

Help us honor those at every step of the breast cancer journey by sharing the story of how you or someone you love has been affected by breast cancer. We will share these stories throughout the month of October on our social media channels to encourage others facing breast cancer.

Our mission is to help those affected by breast cancer through early detection, education and support services. Watch Sandra’s story to hear how she was able to receive the help of a bilingual patient navigator to hold her hand through the difficult journey of being diagnosed with breast cancer. Sandra is just ONE of the many women we get to help every day in our commitment to walking alongside women through every step of their breast cancer journey.
