As the only specialist breast cancer support charity working across the UK we want to be here with support and information even during the festive period when we know people can sometimes need it more than ever.
In the first of two blogs aiming to help you understand what services we make available for anyone affected by breast cancer over the holidays I asked one of our online discussion forum moderators – Sam – about the team’s work.
Advanced breast cancer is widely misunderstood by the public and people affected by it often feel isolated and unsupported. This was the loud and clear message from the ABC2 international conference in Lisbon.
Sometimes only someone who’s been there can really understand what you’re going through. Being diagnosed with breast cancer as a younger woman can be incredibly isolating and we often hear how difficult it can be to find someone who's been through similar experiences.
