Recently Diagnosed: Overview

If you’ve recently been diagnosed with breast cancer, find information here about programs and services the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition can offer you.

If you are recently diagnosed, we encourage you to come to one of our Beginning Your Pink Ribbon Journey groups and learn more here!

Our Peer Mentor Support program can match you with a survivor who has faced a similar diagnosis, treatment or recovery. Our Peer Mentor Program Coordinators can speak with you about your specific needs, answer your questions about breast cancer, and provide many resources as you being your journey.

If you are women diagnosed with breast cancer in your 20’s, 30’s and 40’s, you may be interested in learning more about our Young Survivors in Action (YSIA) program.

The “Beginning Your Journey” programs helps connect women with local resources and professional staff at the area’s cancer centers to address their concerns and get the support they need. The programs will be offered monthly, in each county, in partnership with a local hospital.

The Frequently Asked Questions section can provide you with questions to take back to your health care team to help you further understand your diagnosis and treatment options.

You’ll also find information about our Clinical Trials Mentoring Initiative, online resources, books and videos.
