  • The Y-ME National Breast Cancer Organization is a national nonprofit organization with the mission to ensure that no one faces breast cancer alone. The organization provides peer support through YourShoes®, a 24/7 breast cancer support center staffed by breast cancer survivors. The Partner Match Program provides support and education for people who are supporting a wife, partner, or other loved one through the disease. The Wig & Prosthesis Bank provides wigs and breast prostheses, and wig care and styling tips for women with limited resources. A Day for You is an all-day event where participants in underserved communities learn about early detection methods, and have access to onsite screenings, mammograms, and/or referrals (see Web site for list of underserved communities). Y-Me's newsletters, other publications, and Web site provide information and support to those touched by breast cancer. A section of the Web site and publications are available in Spanish, Chinese, Korean, Tagalog, Russian, and Vietnamese.
