Breast Friends is a local breast cancer support group in Windsor, Colorado. It was founded by three women who were diagnosed with breast cancer in 2003 in their 30 s. As can happen in a small town, these three women found one another through friendship connections. Knowing how emotionally and physically challenging hearing one has breast cancer and the following treatment can be, they became committed to provide a safe and supporting haven for others in Windsor traveling that journey. It is a difficult journey and one that women do not have to travel alone.
Since they founded Breast Friends, membership has grown to over 75 current and past women. Almost every month, we see new faces at our meetings. We continue to grow, reaching out to more women with breast cancer. Breast Friends is a very unique chartible organization. Everyone who 'works' for Breast Friends, donates their time; therefore, 100% of the proceeds from events and donations are used to provide services and support to Windsor and surounding area women.
