Who are we?
We are a support group for people (women and men) who have or have had breast cancer,
at any stage of their breast cancer experience.
Everyone involved in the group has had a diagnosis of breast cancer.
We are a real mixture. Our ages range from mid-twenties to mid-seventies. Some of us work, others are retired.
Some of us have young children, others grandchildren. Most of us are women, but not all of us.
Some of us have only been recently diagnosed and are currently having treatment. Others
completed our treatment several years ago. Some of us have experienced recurrences since our first diagnosis and some
of us are living with secondary breast cancer.
What do we do?
aim is to support each other. We have learnt that just being in touch with each other is incredibly helpful. Breast
cancer can be isolating and scary, but meeting others and sharing information makes a real difference.
We hold meetings twice
a month to which anyone is welcome to "drop-in". Some meetings have a serious, breast cancer-related topic
with an external speaker. Several local health care professionals have delivered really good talks at our meetings. Other
meetings have lighter "fun" topics. There is always plenty of time for coffee and tea and the occasional curry!
