Breast Cancer Support Group

The Breast Cancer Support Group is a friendly and supportive group not only for those recently diagnosed but also for those whose treatment has finished. We are not only there to support those affected, you are welcome to bring someone with you if you wish. The Breast Care Nurses also attend and encourage you to enjoy a chat over a free cup of tea or coffee and join in the fun when we run group raffles. We aim to be there for you when you need to talk or just for some light-hearted company.
