The Breast Health Resource Program
The Breast Health Resource Program (BHRP) is dedicated to meeting the emotional and practical needs of women and men with breast cancer. We offer information, guidance, and critical support to patients from diagnosis through survivorship. Our clinical social workers offer highly individualized counseling to help manage the complex demands of a breast cancer diagnosis.
Patients coping with a breast cancer diagnosis must gather treatment information, evaluate treatment options and outcomes, and may have to make life-altering decisions in a pressured and limited timeframe. Having non-judgmental and informed professionals to help guide them through this process is crucial. The BHRP environment is a calm, non-medical, and intimate environment for the overwhelmed patient where she or he may obtain support and knowledge. From insurance concerns to family issues, our social workers will be your guides and advisors.
Thanks to our generous supporters, our services are provided at no charge to anyone with a diagnosis of breast cancer, at any stage from diagnosis to treatment through survivorship.
