A chance encounter led Jen & Rochelle to a life-changing friendship and a new mission to support fellow breast cancer survivors in their community. After discovering that they both had the same type of breast cancer and received treatment from the same surgeons and doctors, they knew they had to do something to raise awareness and offer support!
This inspired the creation of BFF’s Sip and Shop Boutique, a boutique that stands for Beauty - Fashion - Faith - Survivors. The boutique offers a wide range of fun, fashionable clothing, unique accessories, natural beauty products, & great gifts! BUT BFF’s is not just a boutique - it’s a place of comfort and support.
“We knew we had to turn our personal struggles into a meaningful mission that can help others in our community. BFF’s is a place where people can come to feel supported and uplifted. We want to empower fellow survivors and remind them that they are beautiful and strong,” said Co-Founder Rochelle Hopkins.
The boutique hosts cancer support group meetings, where people can share their stories and receive support from others who understand their journey. There are always friendly, welcoming smiles and words of encouragement from the owners. BFF’s has quickly become a popular destination in the community, with people coming from surrounding communities to shop, connect with others, and find inspiration. The clothing, accessories, and beauty products offered by the boutique will help boost the confidence and beauty of any shopper.
“We are so grateful for the support we have received from the community as well as our customers,” said Co-Founder Jen Lauritsen. “We hope that BFF’s can continue to be a place of hope for survivors everywhere!”
Breast Friends Forever Cancer Support Group
BFF’s boutique has their own cancer support group, Breast Friends Forever. This is a great place for cancer survivors to come together, share their stories, and find support from others who have gone through similar experiences.
The support group meetings organized by BFF’s can also provide a safe space for cancer survivors to express their fears and concerns, and receive emotional support from others who understand what they are going through. In addition to providing a safe place, the group also offers enjoyable activities, engaging projects, meaningful conversations, and informative educational sessions.
BFF’s is not just a place to shop for fashion and beauty products, but also a community of survivors who uplift and support each other through their shared experiences!
