Younger Women with Secondaries Together - 24 and 25 June 2022

If you’re a younger woman with secondary breast cancer, we’re here for you. Meet other women who understand and get tailored support in a safe, welcoming space through Younger Women with Secondaries Together.

Two days of information, support and sharing with around 40 women aged 45 or under who have been diagnosed with secondary breast cancer. This annual event is a chance for you to meet other women in a similar position. As well as whole-group sessions, you'll be able to choose a number of break-out groups led by experts and specialists. Topics include current research and trials, sexuality and intimacy, palliative care and sessions where you can explore the impact a life-limiting diagnosis has had on different areas of your life. 

All the information is tailored for younger women with secondary breast cancer and you'll have plenty of opportunities to ask questions. We provide all meals and refreshments as well as overnight accommodation on the Friday night.

As with all our services this event is free of charge.
