On Wednesday 27th November 2013 SELBCT took over the running of a Breast Cancer Support Group at the Sloane Hospital, Beckenham.
Bromley Breast Friends is a group of trustees and volunteers all from SELBCT who have undergone buddy training with MacMillan Cancer Support to help support women and men during and after cancer treatment.
After advertising the event locally, both in the media and at clinic’s we arrived early and hoped that someone would attend and join us…. They certainly did, in fact we were joined by many patients some accompanied by relatives and friends.
The evening was a great success phone numbers were swapped between people just starting their treatment, loads of experiences were shared and plans were made for future meetings.
The next meeting will be held on Wednesday 29th January 2014 19.30hrs at the Sloane Hospital, Beckenham. The support group is open to anyone touched by Breast Cancer NHS or Private patients who attend any hospital and would like to join us.
January’s meeting will have a guest speaker hopefully a nutritionist who specialises in cancer. This will be confirmed on the web site nearer the time.
A thank you to those people that attended and we all look forward to seeing you in all January. Please feel free to contact us if you wish to speak to someone for support.
