Thursday Night Thrivers

A virtual meetup to provide support and camaraderie Thursday nights at 7pm ET. What started off as a support group during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic quickly transcended into one of our most coveted and signature programs. 

"Thank you for hosting this amazing event and for all of the other things you continue to do to keep us all educated. I feel such a sense of community and I’ve only come to two Thrivers’ meetings!" Charmina, MI

Breast Cancer Book Club™ 

Survivingbreastcancer.org has teamed up with the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) to offer a monthly book club. Unlike other book clubs, this new signature program focuses on reading for enjoyment, not for coping with breast cancer! From mysteries and memoirs, to history and fantasy, Breast Cancer Book Club members are able to find relaxation and community throughout the month. 

Pillar #3: Resources

Providing resources is an important component of the work we do at survivingbreastcancer.org. From developing helpful resource guides to providing recommendations for financial assistance or rides to and from the hospital, we are pleased to continue to grow our offerings to serve you.
