Important Resources for Breast Cancer Survivors

From the moment I began my complimentary Warrior Goddess sessions for Breast Cancer Survivors, I knew these special women would forever change my life. I have photographed women at various stages in their diagnosis from those just diagnosed to 10-year survivors. When these survivors trust me to guide them through the process of boudoir photography and trying on lingerie, finding outfits that accentuate your best features, having your hair and makeup done they feel beautiful and pampered. They forget their scars. They forget that their body looks different. They forget that their hair is thinned or looks completely different. All they know is that THEY ARE FABULOUS. I guide them through the process and treat them like the goddesses they are.


Each and every woman has a powerful story of strength, reliance, and a renewed love of life and connection. I have felt so blessed to meet each and every one of these women and their stories of survival and strength has touched me deeply. As I began to give back to this community of women more and more businesses began to contact me regarding their services for survivors. I want to help in every way possible so I have put together a list of Amazing & Special resources for breast cancer survivors at every stage.

These organizations and businesses along with mine have heartfelt approaches to helping cancer survivors at various stages of their cancer journey, and are available to help pick up where the doctors leave off. From financial assistance to alternative health and wellness support and services, this is a local listing that will be updated as we continue to learn about more resources in our area. With 1 in 8 women facing a diagnosis of breast cancer, it is my sincere hope that this list can be a place of refuge for those facing cancer and for caregivers and friends and family of those whose lives are touched by this disease. As a community of women, we are stronger together, and with support and awareness of this disease and the resources available, we can uplift and ease the pain of our sisters.
