Hello- I am looking for a breast cancer support group in the Des Moines/Ankeny/Altoona area for a friend. She really needs somewhere she can talk, ask questions, and air her concerns with a group of people who have been through the same thing. The group she was able to find didn't offer this type of setting- she just said it wasn't geared toward talking with other survivors.

I referred her to the support group at Stoddard Cancer Center, but don't know enough about that group to know if it is what she is looking for.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Not sure if they have anything local, but I think this is the website a family member used to find support. It might have been more one on one, not sure.

This is a great resource- thank you! I forwarded this information on to my friend. This is phone-based one on one support so she might be matched up with a mentor from another part of the country which I think is great.

I appreciate the information- thank you BetterCallPaul!

Everyone has their own preference for how they get support they need when dealing with health issues. Wishing your friend the very best in her recovery!
