Breast cancer strikes more women than any other cancer and hits the LGBTQ community harder than other communities. This support group is for anyone suffering from breast cancer regardless of sexual orientation or gender.

We provide a safe haven where gay, bisexual and questioning women can find acceptance, support and a friendly atmosphere.
