Breast Cancer Haven

A diagnosis of breast cancer can be frightening and the treatment gruelling. Surgery, hair loss, radiation, chemotherapy and medication can all take its toll. Medical treatment is necessary but you will need so much more than this.

That is where we come in.

We offer advice on practical things like money and work, help combatting stress, exhaustion and nausea, advice on healthy eating and exercise. And above all, there will always be someone to talk to about your deepest fears.

Our trained professional nurses, therapists, counsellors and advisers listen to your individual concerns and give you all the practical, emotional and physical support you need in a tailor-made package.

Our support is free of charge and available in our beautiful Breast Cancer Haven centres – which are as far away from a hospital environment as you can imagine.

Did you know...

1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. We know that we need to be there to support them. Anyone can come – whether you’ve just been diagnosed, having treatment or in recovery. There is no need for a doctor’s referral.

A diagnosis of breast cancer does not only affect one person. It impacts their close friends and family too. We offer 4 hours of free counseling to family or close friends to help support them through this difficult time.

What makes Breast Cancer Haven different

Breast Cancer Haven’s support is free of charge.

Each Visitor to Breast Cancer Haven first meets with a specialist nurse who will talk to them about their individual concerns and issues. We then build a programme of up to ten free hours of therapy time that this tailored to their personal needs.

Other ways to support

Volunteering at events, taking part in bucket collections, volunteer to help run our onsite kitchens, asking your workplace to donate gifts for raffles and auctions, introduce us to your workplace and spread the word about what we do to all your friends and family.
