Hope Chest

Breast cancer support group

You are not alone

Breast cancer can be a frightening, emotional experience. At Greeneville Community Hospital East, we know the importance of finding comfort in having a common bond that gives us a foundation to support each other in our search for answers.

Greeneville Community Hospital East provides a comprehensive breast care program. Our qualified technologists in our Women’s Health Center are experienced in providing women’s breast care.

Who we are

Hope chest is a support group for women who have had breast cancer. We offer no medical advice but try to help find answers and serve as a resource.
