MANATEE COUNTY, Fla. — A local community is getting together to show support for breast cancer patients and survivors.

The new nonprofit group, My Breast Friends 941, held a launch celebration at the Gold Coast Eagle Distributing in Sarasota Thursday. The group was formed to help patients in the area ease their fears as they go through a difficult and nerve-racking experience.

My Breast Friend 941 provides free direct services in the forms of grocery gift cards, meals, housecleaning, rides to treatment, peer support, inspiration and more.

The organization is currently accepting volunteers and donations to help those battling breast cancer. Those interested in helping My Breast Friends 941 can click here for more information.
