Women and men who have been diagnosed with breast cancer are
never alone. In this time of social distancing and isolation, it can feel like
we are all alone. But we aren’t. Susan G. Komen offers many resources and help
to patients, their families and loved ones who are going through a diagnosis
Trained staff at the Susan G. Komen Breast Care Helpline are
available to answer questions and help everyone impacted by breast
cancer through this difficult time. The staff offers education, psychosocial
support and information on where patients and the loved ones can go for
additional, local resources.
We know that times are uncertain. Doctors’ appointments may
be delayed, annual screenings are likely to be rescheduled, treatment might be
impacted, and you have a list of questions. Some of us may be unable to see a
