We don’t accomplish anything in this world alone ... and whatever happens is the result of the whole tapestry of one’s life and all the weavings of individual threads from one to another that creates something.

— Sandra Day O’Connor

Thanks for Invaluable Support
Bonny Breuer, Survivor/Advocate, and Tony Breuer, MD, Artist/Advocate — For sharing their passion and a painting from the heart, Beauty and the Beast, to help raise funds for continuation of the Resource Directory project.

Common Woman Chorus — For unwavering support and producing musical magic in the 2004 “Raising Our Voices: A Breast Cancer Benefit” concert that helped make publication of this edition possible.

Acknowledgment of Organizations
We would like to express our gratitude to national cancer and breast cancer organizations for providing accurate breast cancer and related information for the publication of this edition of the Resource Directory.

Special Thanks
To Robert C. Millikan, DVM, PhD, Associate Professor in the UNC School of Public Health, for initiating UNC’s involvement with the Resource Directory project in 1998, and for supporting the project in every way possible since then.

To Jeff Hurley, for his creativity, professionalism and tremendous contributions of time, talents and commitment to the graphic design and production of all three editions.

To our Women Building Bridges volunteers for their willingness to share their time, experiences and support with other breast cancer patients.

And to all the women and men who have supported the Resource Directory, helped to get the word out, ordered copies to give to their co-workers, support group members, healthcare providers and friends, and who wrote us with much appreciated feedback.

Special Thanks from Jamie Konarski Davidson, Founder
To Jeffrey, my best friend, husband and soul mate, for abiding love, support, encouragement and understanding …and most of all for answered prayers.

Note: Unless otherwise noted, all contributors are from North Carolina. “UNC” refers to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
