    Santa Rosa Beach––Fore Her, a local non-profit organization helping women battling breast
    cancer, has launched a breast cancer peer support group. The group will meet on the third
    Saturday of each month at the Coastal Branch Library in Santa Rosa Beach. The first meeting
    will take place on Saturday, March 16 at 9 a.m. The group was created to provide a safe space
    for women to discuss their experiences and needs while also providing connections to local
    resources. The group is open to those currently undergoing treatment and survivors of breast
    cancer.
    “We would like to bring breast cancer patients and survivors together to talk about what
    everyone is going through, give advice, just listen and learn about more resources in the area
    that offer help and hope,” Amy Walsh, founder of Fore Her, said. “Since this is a new group it
    will evolve and become whatever attendees make of it.”
    Fore Her is a 501(c)3 organization that was started in memory of Founder Amy Walsh’s mother
    and aunt, who both lost their battles with breast cancer. The Santa Rosa Beach based
    non-profit works to financially assist local women battling breast cancer, allowing them to use
    the money in any way they need––whether that’s paying the mortgage or buying groceries.
    “Over the last six years, Fore Her has been able to help ease the financial burden for countless
    women in our community,” Walsh said. “By hosting these support groups, we hope to expand
    our impact by helping to ease the emotional stress that comes with breast cancer.” Peer Support Group-2.jpg
