Support For You

Breast cancer can be scary and confusing, both for those diagnosed and for their family and friends. It’s important to have a strong support network to help with the physical and emotional demands of this disease. Remember, you are not alone. There are many support services available to assist you on this journey, including:

  • If you’re in need of local resources or have questions on our current grantees, please do not hesitate to contact Komen Central Tennessee at 615-383-0017 and speak to our Mission/Education Director, Daveisha Moore. You can also find a list of our Current Community Grantees here.

 

  • Our affiliate offers a program called the Komen Community Ambassadors. These women and men represent the Faces of Breast Cancer in our Affiliate’s Service Area.
