Established in 1994, the Community Breast Health Project (CBHP) provides free, high-quality services, information and support to people touched by breast cancer in an atmosphere of warmth, sensitivity and understanding. CBHP evolved from the dream of a single patient and her surgeon – a community center where breast cancer patients could go for up-to-date medical information and support from fellow survivors. The dream and the number of people sharing it began to grow as more than 200 people brainstormed on how best to meet the needs of breast cancer survivors and their families. They agreed that an organization was needed to do three things: offer patient and family support in a safe, welcoming environment; inform and educate; and improve coordination of medical care and community resources.
