Welcome to Reach To Recovery!

Join Now for Breast Cancer Support

If you have breast cancer, you may want to connect with someone who knows what you’re feeling – someone who has “been there.” Through the American Cancer Society Reach To Recovery program, you can have an online chat or a phone conversation with a trained volunteer who has survived breast cancer and understands what you are going through.

Our volunteers provide one-on-one support to help you cope with treatment, side effects, talking with friends and family, working during treatment, and more. Volunteers do not provide medical advice. Reach To Recovery is a free program.

Reach To Recovery supports people wherever they are in their breast cancer journey.

  • Recently diagnosed with breast cancer
