Awareness Month Building Connections after Breast Cancer Diagnosis by Sheila Julson


C


onnecting with others diagnosed with breast cancer can pro- vide whole-person emotional and spiritual support. Milwau- kee-based After Breast Cancer Diagnosis (ABCD) offers com- fort and encouragement through a nationwide network of mentors—all breast cancer survivors or caregivers—that provide customized peer support via phone, text and email. A nonprofit, all services provided by ABCD are free.


Executive Director Ellen Friebert Schupper says, “We make it easy. People call and tell us a bit about themselves. We then create a con- nection with one of our trained mentors who are ready to give back and help someone else in need of support. Those close connec- tions can have a strong impact on someone going through breast cancer. We match people based on who they are as a person, in addition to their specific breast cancer diagnosis and treat- ment. We connect a 45


year-old working mom who has just been diagnosed with breast cancer with a woman who is a survivor, also 45 and a busy working mom. We meet each caller at the place where they are.”


They also receive calls from family members that need help sup- porting their loved ones, such as a recent call from a father. His young daughter had been diagnosed with metastasized breast cancer, and he needed help talking to her. While they weren’t able to connect him to another father, they matched him to a mentor whose age, place in life and diagnosis were similar. Friebert Schupper reports it has been a powerful match, “The person who seeks out our service gains tre- mendous value, and it’s also good for the mentors. The power of these connections is important to their overall health as well, by keeping them connected and engaged which results in better health outcomes. It helps them pay attention to their own self-care.”
