Description

Have you experienced a diagnosis of breast cancer, recently or in the past, and would like to speak with women who understand, know ‘how it is’ and can provide information and reassurance?

Breast Cancer Support offers community-based services provided by trained volunteers who have experienced breast cancer themselves and can support others from a positive, personal perspective.

BCS services include:

  • individual support (face to face meeting or by telephone)
