The Y-ME offers a variety of free programs and services to support anyone who has been affected by breast cancer. Some of these programs include a 24 hour National Breast Cancer Hotline with peer counselors who are also breast cancer survivors, a Wig and Prosthesis Bank, a Survivor Match Program to offer support to breast cancer survivors, a Partner Match Program to offer encouragement and hope to partners of breast cancer victims, and informative breast cancer publications. These are just a few of the generous services the Y-ME provides to those touched by breast cancer.
'Walk. Run. Empower'. The 'Race to Empower' has the goal of providing support services to individuals to make sure that nobody has to face breast cancer alone. Hopefully you'll be able to join the many mothers and women who will be participating in the race for an inspiring Mother's day!
