We’re Here for You

In 1993, Bay Area Cancer Connections was founded to fill an unmet need in the community for those facing breast cancer. Today, that gap in services still exists for ovarian cancer patients and their families. Women with ovarian cancer need support, hope, and inspiration from others who have faced, survived, and lived with ovarian cancer.

In 2013, we responded to the overwhelming need for emotional support for ovarian cancer patients, and in honor of our 20th Anniversary, Bay Area Cancer Connections expanded programs and services to support both breast cancer and ovarian cancer clients. As an organization committed to ensuring that no one faces breast cancer alone, we feel privileged to be able to fulfill that same commitment for those facing ovarian cancer.
