Secondary Breast Cancer – Focus Friends

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 programme is one way for individuals to interact with other people in similar circumstances.
