Younger women with breast cancer have particular concerns and problems relating to both the disease and its treatment and the effect it will have on their lives. As a young women, you may have questions, for example, about how breast cancer will affect fertility, sexuality or your career.
We hold monthly support groups for young women, with guest speakers on a variety of topics.The chance to meet others of a similar age who are all experiencing or have recovered from breast cancer provides a welcome opportunity for mutual support and information sharing.
You might also like to speak to an Experienced Patient, who has been through breast cancer as a young women themself. One of our most valuable services is the one-to one support they give, in confidence, either at home, at the Centre or over the phone. The experience of an ‘experienced patient’ puts her in a unique position to give encouragement and support. She can talk about fears and concerns in a way that only someone who has had personal experience can do.
If you are under the age of 40 and are interested in finding out about the support we have on offer for younger women, please do contact us.
Cancerkin’s complementary caring services are available to patients with breast cancer, free of charge for a series of sessions, regardless of where they have been treated.
