*To Life! Board Member


To Life! Clients

Listened to and not judged

"Found a member who had gone through the treatment I was about to go through, which gave me peace of mind that I could get through it. I also always feel listened to and not judged, which doesn't always happen among family and friends." 

- support group attendee

Should be designated as an essential service

"To Life! should be designated as an essential service. Following my surgery, it was very stressful to have to wait to be fitted for mastectomy products." 

- local survivor

I wish I did not wait six months

"I am so happy I joined the support group. I wish I did not wait six months after my diagnosis to join. It has been a wonderful experience for me...I always feel like I always learn something new at the monthly support group meetings!!"
