Facebook group provides support for women diagnosed with breast cancer

ROCKFORD (WREX) — A group is offering support to those affected by breast cancer.

The group is called Breasties, Young Breast Cancer Warriors of Northern Illinois. The Facebook group looks to provide guidance and support for women in northern Illinois area who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. The group includes women who have been diagnosed with the disease and gone through treatment.

“We found that we really need the support of each other,” said page creator Ashley Rogers. “It helps so much to get through treatment when you have somebody else who’s been there, who kind of knows what you’re going through. We can all kind of fight together. It made us a little stronger in numbers.”
