Night of Empowerment 

Basket of Care’s Night of Empowerment events provide venues for breast cancer survivors to come together for upbeat evenings of fun, socialization, and peer support.


We host these events at salons, restaurants, tea houses, and other places where people with breast cancer can focus on personal wellness (emotional, mental, spiritual) rather than medical issues.


People with breast cancer will likely undergo surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, or biologic therapy in the course of treatment, times when the need for emotional support is critical because patients often feel alone, confused, and scared. Social support helps breast cancer survivors fight back and stay in remission far longer than people with few emotional outlets. Cancer researchers have found that breast cancer patients benefit medically from meaningful emotional support networks. Nights of Empowerment events provide a critical period of respite in the cancer journey.

Do you or someone you know have an interest in volunteering?

 Recently diagnosed individuals often feel confused and frightened. Basket of Care volunteers have experienced those emotions firsthand, and they are eager to offer their emotional support or refer other great support.
