Education and Support Services

Individuals who receive abnormal results on their screening tests need support and accurate information in order to make the best choices about follow-up and care. So do those who are diagnosed with breast cancer. Friends and family members are often called upon to help, but may not have the knowledge or skills they need. These community-based programs and services offer assistance and comfort when it is needed most.
