Our Attitude of Gratitude
It's the season of thanks, and at Carolina Breast Friends we have so many things for which we're thankful. We are thankful for every person who walks through our door newly diagnosed and looking for a soft place to land. We are thankful for all the longtime Survivors who continue to use our programs to connect and who are so willing to mentor others who are facing what they have faced. We are thankful for every person who puts their time or dollars into the helping make the journey easier for breast cancer Survivors.

What else are we giving thanks for this year? Read on >>

We also used the occasion to celebrate our 15th anniversary as an organization. Here's are the highlights. Plus a link to photos from the big night!
