The Friend to Friend Specialty Shops at the UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center are one-stop boutiques specializing in products and services for cancer patients and their families and friends.
Friend to Friend Specialty Shops
Friend to Friend @ Mission Bay
This is the place to visit when you need:
- mastectomy bras and breast prostheses
- comfortable headwear, fun scarves and hats
Our stores are welcoming oases where patients can shop in privacy with the help of our supportive staff, many of whom are cancer survivors themselves. Let our trained fitters help you find just the right products to make you look and feel your best during your cancer journey.
We also have an excellent selection of comfortable women's clothing that's perfect for cancer patients during treatment and beyond, as well as the accessories and jewelry to complete any outfit. We guarantee you'll leave our store looking like a new woman!
It's best, but not required, to call ahead and make an appointment to be fitted for a wig, bra or head covering.
Social workers and other medical providers can refer patients to our outreach program that provides free cancer products to women and adolescent girls in financial need.
Friend to Friend @ Mount Zion
Find the perfect gifts for patients, family and friends, or browse our great selection of UCSF logo wear, including jackets, vests, hoodies and T-shirts for women and men.
Greeting cards and more
At both our Mission Bay and Mount Zion shops, you'll find a unique assortment of greeting cards, a selection of books chosen especially for cancer patients, reading glasses, our ever-popular Jellycat stuffed animal and objects collection, inspirational gifts, puzzles, essential sundries and snacks.
We look forward to helping you put a smile on your face!
Special note: Friend to Friend wishes to thank UCSF's Laura Esserman, M.D., for her vision and help in establishing our shops, where women can shop for cancer products in privacy and dignity. We are also deeply grateful to Ruth Ann Rosenberg and her family for their longstanding support of our efforts to help women obtain essential cancer products, regardless of their ability to pay.
