What to expect at a Younger Women with Secondaries Together event
About the online sessions
We run monthly group sessions on Zoom. They’re facilitated by one of our experienced counsellors who will welcome you when you join. The sessions are informal and relaxed and a space for you to talk about whatever’s on your mind. They usually take place on the third Tuesday of every month, from 1–2.30pm.
About the four-week events
We run four-week events where you'll hear from expert speakers on topics including adjusting and adapting to a life-limiting illness; a Q&A with an oncologist; and you'll get an opportunity to connect with other younger women. We run these events around three times a year. Register your interest and we’ll get in touch with you once the dates of the next event are confirmed.
You can email us with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org. We're always here to help.
Two-day in-person event
A few times a year, we also run in-person events over two days, just for women under 45 with secondary breast cancer. Run in groups of around 40 women, these events are a chance for you to meet other women in a similar position, go to informative talks, and share what’s on your mind.
As well as whole-group sessions, you'll be able to choose a number of break-out groups led by experts. We provide all meals and refreshments, plus overnight accommodation on the Friday night. As with all our services, this event is free.
I found these sessions really useful, and it was really good to connect with people of a similar age going through the same thing.
Further support for you
Whether you’re dealing with the news of your diagnosis, managing the ongoing side effects, or you want to talk to others in a similar situation, our free services are here for anyone affected by breast cancer.
