A Message from the Executive Director

We are still here, we are excited and we look forward to serving you for the next ten years and beyond.  Thanks to our Board Members, volunteers and supporters who worked faithfully because they believe in you.

For the past ten years we have faithfully served our community and are poised to do an even better job in the future.  The Olive Branch stepped into the gap ten years ago to provide service to our unique population that is rich in cultural diversity.  Our programs are shaped with you in mind.  Programs that allow you to freely express yourself in a safe and confidential environment with others you can relate to and that speaks directly to your specific needs.

Our new fresh look begins with our website. Our new site has been enhanced with many features that are easy to navigate.  You will be able to share your concerns whether they are about cancer, social, emotional, or financial.  Our goal is to ensure that all women have direct access to the information and services they need after a diagnosis of breast cancer.

We are proud of our achievements. But, we are still short on research information that is specific to you, women of colour.  It is our intention to work with other community researchers, clinicians and stakeholders to close this gap and to provide you with the best in supportive care.

Together we will thrive and survive.
