Pink Ribbon Program

The Pink Ribbon Program brings volunteer survivors face-to-face with current patients undergoing treatment in the Breast Center.

Research supports the concept of peer support for cancer patients’ healing process and patient-to-patient shared experiences allow common fears or anxieties to be expressed, supporting a patient's cancer journey. In the program, carefully selected Basavatarakam breast cancer survivor volunteers are trained to visit new and current Basavatarakam patients and family members.

Educated to listen to patient concerns and share appropriate personal cancer experiences, the volunteer also provides patient support with care, compassion and integrity.

In addition, volunteer survivors are available to medical personnel. Unlike some cancers, treatment for breast cancer involves a menu of options. Pink Ribbon volunteers help breast cancer patients become more comfortable with available treatments by demonstrating their surgical results and answering questions about their personal treatment experiences.
