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.

Wigs, Hats & Scarves

To Life!’s boutiques offer an extensive selection of stylish and comfortable wigs.  You can count on our professional staff to give you the time, care and attention you deserve.

Mastectomy Bras & Prosthesis

If you’ve undergone surgical procedures, you have many options.  To Life!’s personalized fitting services include a wide variety of mastectomy bra styles, colors and sizes, as well as post-surgical garments.

Wellness Programs

To Life! offers a wide range of wellness programs designed to offer you free-of-charge opportunities to experience the benefits of these complementary therapies.  Examples include massage, reiki, yoga and more.

Support Groups & Mentoring

To Life! support and mentoring programs provide the emotional support you may need in a warm and safe environment. 

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.

Honoring the past, treasuring the present, empowering the future.

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.
