Outreach Projects

Pillows


Mastectomy pillows are provided for use after surgery.  Pillows can be placed between the side and arm to help alleviate pressure created in the surgery area.  They are machine washable and can be found at the Pink House or through Breast Health Nurse Navigators.


Inspiration Jars


Jars are filled with inspirational quotes written by survivors. Each quote includes the survivor's name, date of diagnosis, and email address. Recipients of the jars are encouraged to email members if they wish to discuss their breast cancer journey. The jars are given out to newly diagnosed breast cancer patients at the Pink House or through the Breast Health Nurse Navigators at local Hospitals and Carolinas Medical Center.

Comfort Bags


Tote bags filled with items useful to most breast cancer patients. The bags help newly diagnosed breast cancer patients better cope with chemotherapy. Bags can be found at the Pink House as well local Oncology offices and through Breast Health Nurse Navigators. We're always looking for donations of supplies for our Comfort Bags. For more information, list of items needed for bags, please send an email to cbf@carolinabreastfriends.org

Mentoring


We work to match each of our new members with a veteran CBF member who is similar in age, diagnosis, and/or treatment. Mentor's serve as a contact person who can help find answers and resources or just offer someone to talk to.
