General Information
Description of AgencyBreast Cancer Information, Patient Services
MissionFormerly Y-ME National Breast Cancer Organization provides information, support and education to women and men diagnosed with breast cancer, their family and friends and those concerned about breast cancer and breast health. Its 24-hour Hotline is staffed by training peer counselors who are breast cancer survivors.
HistoryY-ME, one of the oldest breast cancer support organizations in the world, closed its doors in July 2012 after 34 years. Its primary service was a 24/7 hotline supported entirely by breast cancer survivors. Promptly upon Y-ME’s closing, ABCD’s Board decided to expand ABCD’s Helpline as the return of 24/7 personal support was vital to the breast cancer community.

Today, all calls placed to Y-ME’s former 800 number and visits to its web site are directed to ABCD and ABCD has begun to work closely with many of the breast cancer treatment centers that relied on Y-ME.
