We are a TurningPoint

TurningPoint was created to address a gap in breast cancer rehabilitation services for both the physical and emotional aspects of recovery. It’s our mission to improve survivors’ quality of life, advocate for evidence-based rehabilitation and minimize various barriers to care. This means that TurningPoint can provide services regardless of a patient’s ability to pay. We’re deeply passionate about helping all breast cancer survivors thrive and get back to doing the things they enjoy.
