Courage to Conquer Cancer and Breast Connect have formed a partnership initiative called Connect to Conquer, offering post-surgical supplies, patient education and flowers for breast cancer patients in Tennessee who require breast surgery.

Patients in need from every county within the 16-county Tennessee service area are eligible. This initiative has been made possible through private donations and funds provided by Breast Connect and Courage Conquering Cancer. Breast cancer patients undergoing a mastectomy can request and receive a floral arrangement through our partner, Random Acts of Flowers, or another florist. The initiative provides care packages that include post-surgical breast surgery and transition-to-home supplies, patient-recommended essential items for recovery and future treatment. Breast cancer educational information is included to foster proactive and informed cancer care decisions in collaboration with health care providers.

For every $100 donated, one patient will receive flowers and a complete care package. Thank you for your donation.
