Bucks County Breast Friends is a support group that offers strength, encouragement, and compassion to those faced with a diagnosis of breast cancer. Initiated in 2007 by breast surgeon, Dr. Beth DuPree, BCBF began with only a few individuals. Today there are over 500 women who call themselves Breast Friends.
This dynamic sisterhood of support is currently co-facilitated by Trish Blake, Michelle Brown, Jill Indelicato, and Kathy Gabriel. Monthly meetings, the BCBF Facebook group, and many shared Breast Friends events allow members to connect, bond, and heal. Breast Friends are women of vitality, positive energy, and inspiration, many chairing or serving on such BCBF committees as Pay-It-Forward, Celebrate Life, Sewing Circle, and Sunshine Committee.
What brings Breast Friends together is a common diagnosis of breast cancer, but what keeps Breast Friends connected is a genuine willingness to support and encourage one another through their diagnoses, through their treatments, and to their survivorship. And for Breast Friends it is not enough to just survive this diagnosis they support each other to thrive after breast cancer. Breast Friends become THRIVERS, reclaiming lives of great health and healing. No woman given the diagnosis of breast cancer will ever have to take her journey alone as long as she has her Breast Friends.
