Need help with your cancer journey?
When someone is diagnosed with cancer, they may experience feelings of shock, anger, or confusion. Even the most supportive family members, friends, or employers cannot understand exactly how it feels to go through a cancer journey.
A programme like this is one way for individuals to interact with other people in similar circumstances.
What to expect?
The programme is packed with tools and techniques to help participants reflect on where they are and how they might want to move forward in a positive way. The group provides a safe space for women with a breast cancer diagnosis to share their story, if they feel comfortable doing so, with other women who have had similar experiences to them.
• Goal setting
• Exploration of common emotions
• Managing different types of thinking
• Managing stress and boundaries
• Consideration of physical health and wellbeing
“It was a fantastic experience and great to meet so many lovely ladies all going through the same experience. It was really uplifting and has helped me start to think about a future beyond breast cancer.”
About the service
The programme is designed for younger women (under 50) who have had a breast cancer diagnosis.
Run by an experienced Group Work Coordinator, the support group meets over a six-week timeframe and is delivered in a variety of locations throughout Northern Ireland.
It is thanks to generous donations that we can continue to deliver vital complimentary cancer support services to thousands of people and families each year.
We keep all donations local and invest 82pence in every £1 directly towards the delivery of our services.
