Breast cancer is complex and so is the information surrounding the disease. BCRC offers access to a variety of educational opportunities - free of charge - on a wide-range of important topics to every woman who calls our helpline.

Coping with Breast Cancer

Coping with Breast Cancer is a multi-week course designed for women within one year of diagnosis, in any phase of treatment, that teaches you how to express and understand the complex feelings that inevitably occur with a breast cancer diagnosis.

Through guided learning activities and group discussions, BCRC Navigators address topics such as understanding fear and anger, reflecting on loss and death, effective communication with caregivers, and the different roles caregivers can play throughout your recovery.

  • Time and location varies from cycle to cycle
  • Typical class size of 6-10 participants
  • Offered multiple times throughout the year
  • Pre-registration is necessary, please RSVP by contacting BCRC

Community Outreach

Community Outreach

BCRC conducts community outreach to educate the community about the importance of breast health. We work with underserved populations to equalize their access to factual information about risk reduction and the benefits of early detection, and to debunk the myths surrounding breast cancer.

We also connect the uninsured, underinsured, and low income population to free and low cost breast health services and work with them to find a primary care physician.

Our bilingual Education Specialist promotes our services by targeting individuals where they live, work and seek assistance with basic needs.

"I will never forget the calm that came upon me when I met her and left the resource center. I knew I had a sanctuary to go to for all my questions." - Annie C., BCRC Client

"Ultimately, the women in my class - young and older, single and married, representing all the different treatments - became a second family. The knowledge I obtained brought me peace of mind about my diagnosis and what to expect in the future. The class helped me change my narrative - to obtain a more positive outlook regarding my diagnosis and my life." - Mary P., BCRC client
