The support of family, friends and others (co-survivors) can be helpful as you go through breast cancer diagnosis, treatment and beyond. In this section, you will find information on the physical and emotional support you may need.

You can also call our breast care helpline at 1-877 GO KOMEN (1-877-465-6636) for more information Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. ET and from 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. PT. Our trained and caring staff provides free, professional support services to anyone with questions or concerns about breast cancer.

Our Co-Survivor section offers tips from survivors, family members and other co-survivors on ways to be a source of support (from lending an ear to cooking a meal) when someone you care about has breast cancer. Our Family, Friends and Caregivers forum within the Message Boards offers co-survivors a safe place to share their own unique experiences and challenges.
