for Hope After Breast Cancer
and Jan James

A shoulder to cry on, a cheerleader to lift you up. Jan James has been all of that and more for me and thousands of other women as we experienced a breast cancer diagnosis. Almost available 24/7, I’m not sure that she even sleeps. Her love and positive energy has sustained us all. Without her, I know in my heart that this life changing event would have been much more daunting. (Gena Z)

Jan has been a tremendous source of reliable information and genuine encouragement. I can always rely on her to gather the facts, find the research, provide the links, and even just throw a sprinkle of laughter into my day. Her leadership is a gift to this community and she is a beautiful example of Hope After Breast Cancer! (Joy B)

Being a breast cancer survivor isn't all its cracked up to be. Yes, the word survivor means I got through my diagnosis, chemo and radiation. But there was so much else to deal with that I never knew and I'm sure a lot of others didn't either. When I found Jan's Facebook page quite by accident I learned that I was not alone. She gave advice and us ladies corresponded with one another about our experiences, good and bad. We gained confidence and strength through the support we gave each other. And we had Jan to thank for that. Her optimism, bubbliness, honesty and encouragement gave me the courage to go on, keep fighting and to remember I was worth fighting for. We need more people like her in the world and as cancer patients we need people who aren't afraid to tell it like it is no matter how hard it may be to hear. Thank you Jan for your beautiful words, laughter and inspiration. (Tricia N)

I have absolutely NO hesitation endorsing Jan for anything to do with helping breast cancer patients/survivors. She is 100% vested in assisting others and I trust her completely. She has a kind, loving heart and always has a supportive word for others. (Deb S)


I met Jan James through the breast cancer support group that Jan started. I’ve known her personally for about 8 1/2 years. She has a heart of gold. She’s not afraid to lay down some truth bombs when they’re needed, but she does so out of love. (Tammy G)


I'm a newbie at being a breast cancer patient and Jan James is a breath of fresh air! Not only does she KNOW what I'm going through, she offers so much help and inspiration! She’s always got a smile on her face, a kind word to say and is always there to uplift and inspire!!! (Susan M)

I've known Jan James for over 7 years and worked very closely with her in several breast cancer groups. I don't know anyone with a bigger heart to help women dealing with breast cancer and treatment. Her knowledge, insight, wisdom and compassion gives breast cancer patients a warm, safe place to receive support and love and also get their many questions and concerns addressed by an expert. If Jan doesn't know the answer, she'll definitely know where to find it! Her passion for helping women spreads to all areas of her life. As an administrator of many Facebook breast cancer support groups, the founder of a breast cancer non-profit, a survivor herself, and a dear friend to many others who've survived breast cancer, her experience is widespread. If you believe, as I do, that there's a purpose for everything that we go through, God has definitely prepared Jan for this mission of caring for, educating and helping those who have gone through and are going through breast cancer. I'm proud to work with her, learn from her, and experience a part of this mission with her! ❤ (Michelle L)
