Reach to Recovery International is built on one simple yet universal principle: a woman who has lived through breast cancer and gives freely of her time to help another woman facing the same experience is a valuable source of support. Reach to Recovery International is committed to working to improve the quality of life of women with breast cancer and their families through a wide range of services offered worldwide.
