If You’ve Just Been Diagnosed
A diagnosis of breast cancer can be life-changing and confusing. If you need support with this change, our team can walk you through some, or many parts of your journey, tailored to your specific needs. Your care with us could include support from a specialist breast care nurse, one-on-one counselling, support groups, therapy workshops, or practical or financial backup, completely free-of-charge. We’re here to walk beside you.
