Our office is located in Yorktown Heights, NY, but through our toll-free cancer information and support line, as well as programs offered via teleconference and video-conference, we provide support to people nationwide.
We are here for you. Regardless of where you are in your journey with cancer, we are here for you. From diagnosis, throughout treatment, recovery, and beyond, we help you navigate the changes you experience as a result of living with breast, ovarian, or gynecological cancer.
If you’re dealing with any stage of breast, ovarian or gynecological cancer, or if a friend or family member has been diagnosed, we are dedicated to providing you with personalized attention in a warm, caring and compassionate way to meet your needs.
Our Unique Approach
Our program is staffed with Peer Counselors, professional counselors who are cancer survivors themselves. They have walked the walk. They know how it feels to hear the words “you have cancer,” which makes all the difference in the world. These Peer Counselors answer calls to our local and toll-free numbers. They provide individualized support by phone, email, and in person. They help you find resources and information to answer your questions and meet your needs. They plan and implement all of our other programs, ensuring that each program is presented from the point of view of someone who has experienced cancer.

- One-on-One Peer Counseling, locally and via national toll-free telephone
