Breast Cancer Resource Center
The Breast Cancer Resource Center (BCRC) organizes free support groups throughout the greater Austin area, including focused support groups for women newly diagnosed, those who have been diagnosed under the age of 45, those who have been diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer, and Spanish language support groups. BCRC also offers one-on-one patient support from certified patient navigators, all of whom are breast cancer survivors.
