It’s that time of year again! Yesterday you took advantage of all the amazing Cyber Monday deals, gearing up for the holidays and enjoying this festive season with the ones you love. It’s also the time of year where many people start to think about giving to others in need. Since today is Giving Tuesday, we wanted to give you a glimpse into the resources your donations to CBCN help support.
Our online navigation tools are designed to provide crucial information to those who are newly diagnosed, in treatment and in financial need. Donations from you help us keep these programs up-to-date.
Helping you understand your surgical options
Your path to accessing financial resources
Newly Diagnosed Guides
We offer two newly diagnosed guides in print and online. These handbooks are so in demand that we can barely keep them in stock! Your donations help us keep these resources available and allow us to ship them for free to those in need.
|Never Too Young:
Psychosocial information and support for young women with breast cancer
|The Metastatic Breast Cancer Guide for the Newly Diagnosed|
Our in person education days offer support, information and connection to breast cancer patients in their communities. Each session focuses on resources available at the hospital and within the community as well as the latest research on treatment and side effects. These in person connections can be crucial in supporting a person through their diagnosis.
More and more, people are heading online to get the information they need. That’s why our blog and digital magazines are so important. Our Voices offers weekly posts on things like side effect management, complementary therapies, the latest research, end of life care, and most importantly, the lived experience of families affected by breast cancer.
A big part of our work every day is to advocate for patients at every level of care and empower patients to advocate when they can. We do this by making sure the voice of patients is heard by decision makers, industry stakeholders and the public.
