Willow Breast & Hereditary Cancer Support


Willow is about helping people cope with the “dark days” of breast and hereditary cancer by providing support with the strength and sense that comes from experience. This support is based on the specific needs of clients: from interest in breast health to diagnosis, treatment and on to survivorship, as well as the specific needs of those living with metastatic breast cancer. Services include a toll-free helpline; a support team comprised of both staff and volunteers who have all had breast cancer, or a high-risk diagnosis and have participated in extensive training to better provide emotional support, pertinent information and assistance in effectively navigating the healthcare system; and a health librarian who can provide assistance with accessing credible information.
