Breast Buddy Outreach Program

Hooked on Hope seeks breast cancer patients who have completed their journey through treatment interested in serving as a 'breast buddy' in the Tampa Bay Communities.

‘Breast Buddies’ would be connected with newly diagnosed breast cancer patients to share their experience, strength, and hope to those who just started their treatment journey.

No in-person meetings would be required.

‘Breast Buddies’ may or may not have beneffited from Hooked on Hope grant funding in the past.

Interested parties should contact Mary Ostien, Co-Founder & Grants Chair, at
