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 people to get to know each other and get the support they need. Meetings are designed to provide peer support for people who have had a diagnosis of myeloma.
They also provide up to date medical information and current good practice for living well with blood cancer.
• Peer encouragement
• Social isolation
• Information about cancer services and treatment
• Fun, friendship, and mindfulness
“Sharing your story in a safe space with others in similar circumstances can help a man with prostate cancer to process emotions around their diagnosis and treatment.”
Caroline Hart, Group Work Coordinator
About the service
This service is for people with a myeloma diagnosis.
Run by an experienced Group Work facilitator working alongside health care professionals, this support group meets in a variety of locations across 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.
