A diverse group of breast cancer survivors formed Shades of Inspiration. After discussing the need for support while dealing with breast cancer, the women realized the importance of reaching out to others and making themselves available in the community to help other women through their journeys. They have the passion and desire to support other women through some of the social, emotional, and psychological aspects of thier diagnoses and empower them to cope with the often overwhelming realities.
Shades of Inspiration will provide individual, family and group support. A member of the group will accompany patients to physicians' appointments, run errands, provide social, emotional and psycholocgical support. They are here to listen, encourage, and help women navigate through the medical process.
Shades of Inspiration seeks to educate women about the various stages of breast cancer. The group believes in coming together in fellowship to share personal stories, laugh, explore, and assist each other as needed. To contact Shades of Inspiration, Inc.
