Support Connection, Inc.

in Non-Profits

Support Connection is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization established in 1996 that offers free, confidential support services to people affected by breast and ovarian cancer. Our office is located in Yorktown Heights, but we offer support to people all over the country. Our mission is to provide emotional, social and educational support services to women, their families and friends affected by breast and ovarian cancer. The support enables women to help each other and empowers them to become their own health care advocates. Support Connection is about caring. Each person that reaches out for support is given personalized attention in a warm, compassionate atmosphere. Services are always free and confidential. Our Peer Counselors, support group facilitators are cancer survivors. It is our goal to assist people so that they make educated decisions about their health care. Once the connection is made, our services span prevention, diagnosis, treatment and recovery. We do not tell people what they need, rather, we offer multiple resources to help meet their individual needs.
