Survivors Offering Support ProgramToggle accordion item
Survivors Offering Support (SOS) is a unique program that pairs women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer with trained volunteers who can offer emotional support and insight like no one else can because they’ve tackled the disease themselves. This important source of emotional support and resources can help make the breast cancer journey an easier one to navigate.
Whether you are facing breast cancer and could benefit from the help of a mentor, or if you are a breast cancer survivor that would like to be considered for training as a mentor, SOS is for you.
For additional information about mentor services available or information about becoming a mentor, call 410-822-1000, ext. 7155.
