Proceeds to Survivors for Research, Inc. A 501(c) 3 non-profit raising funds for Triple Negative Breast Cancer Research.

113 N Main St. Gainesville, FL           



Volunteers Needed

The American Cancer Society is very much in need of breast cancer survivors who are willing to spend just a little time to be trained--- from home--- as 

ACS Reach to Recovery volunteers.  Both women and men are needed to help.


Once trained, the volunteers are matched with patients newly diagnosed with breast cancer, who are undergoing or about to undergo a similar treatment plan. 


Please "pay it forward" by helping to fulfill this great need.  Only those of us who  have walked in their shoes can appreciate what new patients are experiencing, and be available to lend an ear.


Requests for patient phone visits are sent via email as ACS receives them.

If you are available to respond to the request, the patient's contact information is then sent to you.   If you are not available, no need to respond.  There is no obligation to respond to every request. 


Please see the attached flier, then call 1-800-2272345 for more information on the Reach to Recovery program.


Help us out by forwarding this to any of your family members, friends, co-workers, friends of co-workers, your patients --- any breast cancer survivor who has been out of active treatment for at least a year.


The reward for being involved in this program is knowing you have helped someone get through the difficult journey through which you have already traveled, with the help of your own family and friends.


Another, or alternate, way you can help is by signing up for the Road to Recovery program.  Many patients are unable to drive themselves, and/or have no other driver, and desperately need transportation to their treatments.  As a Road volunteer, you would help these patients get to their appointments, but, again, there is no obligation to fulfill every request.  Call 1-800-2272345 for more information on volunteering, or to sign up someone you know.
