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 cancer support group is one way for individuals to interact with other people in similar circumstances.
What to expect?
A safe and welcoming space for local women to get to know each other and get the support they need. Meetings are social and informative and designed to enable group members to live more positively and confidently with their breast cancer diagnosis.
• Peer encouragement
• Reduction in social isolation
• Information about cancer services and treatment
• Fun and friendship
“Sharing your story in a safe space with others in similar circumstances can help a woman with breast cancer to process emotions around their diagnosis and treatment.”
Caroline Hart, Group Work Coordinator
About the service
A support group for women in the Downpatrick area who have had a breast cancer diagnosis.
Run by the charity’s volunteer bra fitters and an experienced Cancer Focus NI facilitator, this group meets four times per year.
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.
