To Life! Support and Education Services

To Life! was founded in 1998 by a breast cancer survivor who understood first-hand the uncertainty, questions and needs faced by those dealing with a breast cancer diagnosis.  Her vision was to create a local, independent, grass-roots organization which would serve our community right here in the Capital District.  We strive to provide the information and resources you need and to help you thrive in your new normal.

Helping You Thrive

To Life’s priority is to connect you with resources and information so that you can make informed choices and work in partnership with your healthcare providers.

Breast Health Workshops

To Life!’s Breast Health Workshops Instructors provide one-on-one and group instruction on breast health, including clinical screening, self-advocacy, performing self-exams, and information on breast cancer risk factors and risk reduction strategies.
