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.

To Life! was founded to provide our community with breast cancer information and services for patients, families and friends. Your health is very important to us. We recognize that good information will improve your relationship with your health provider and lead to better decisions about your care. We welcome the opportunity to assist during and after active treatment.
