I didn’t know where to turn. I am so glad that I called. You (Komen Breast Cancer Helpline) have been a great help to me.

 

When you call or email

All calls and emails are answered by a trained and caring staff member in English and Spanish, Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. ET. TTD is also available.

A helpline specialist may also:

  • Help you think about and develop a list of your needs in order of priority,
  • Reassure you that your feelings and concerns are typical—that you are not alone in how you feel,
  • Educate you about breast cancer issues and coping mechanisms,
  • Teach and coach you how to better talk with your health care team; and
  • Help you write a list of questions and find ways to help you remember the answers.

Komen does not provide medical advice or referrals to physicians, medical facilities or other services.

Thank you (Komen Breast Cancer Helpline) so much for just listening to me, it was nice to have someone who is not with you every day and will not be mad or worried about you, listen to your concerns. I really appreciate it.
