What qualifications are needed to become a Bosom Buddy Network volunteer?

To become a PinkHippy.org Bosom Buddy Network volunteer you must be a breast cancer survivor, or a family member or friend of a survivor. You must also be at least 18 years of age. You should possess a positive attitude, good listening skills, and be willing to share your breast cancer experience.

Who will I be matched with?

Bosom Buddy volunteers are matched with those in need according to the status or relationship to the breast cancer patient (i.e., patient, family member, or and friend).  Age, gender and geographic location are considered as well. This careful matching process is intended to build trust and understanding, and to help the volunteer and their match relate on a common level.


How will I be contacted?

The coordinator for the Bosom Buddy Network will always initiate contact with the volunteer when a request is made. Breast cancer patients and others looking to connect with a Bosom Buddy Volunteer may contact PinkHippy.org to request the connection.
