About the organisation

We offer breast cancer support designed for you. A diagnosis of breast cancer can be frightening and the treatment gruelling. Surgery, hair loss, radiation, chemotherapy and medication can all take its toll. Medical treatment is necessary but you will need so much more than this. That is where we come in. We offer advice on practical things like money and work, help combatting stress, exhaustion and nausea, advice on healthy eating and exercise. And above all, there will always be someone to talk to about your deepest fears. Our trained professional nurses, therapists, counsellors and advisers listen to your individual concerns and give you all the practical, emotional and physical support you need in a tailor-made package. Our support is free of charge and available in our beautiful Haven centres – which are as far away from a hospital environment as you can imagine. Each Visitor to The Haven can expect to receive up to ten free hours of therapy time. In addition, you will also receive two hours of nurse specialist time at the beginning and end of your tailored programme.
