BREAST CANCER SUPPORT GROUP
Being given a diagnosis of Breast Cancer can be a tremendous shock. Every one in eight women will now receive this diagnosis at some point in their lives. Breast cancer is the 2nd most common cause of death, survival cases are higher due to early treatment and diagnoses.
Up until recently, if you lived in Warwick District there was no local support group available, the nearest would of been Coventry. While the hospital team and the Breast Care nurses give excellent care and advice, the whole experience can be quite isolating and you may welcome the opportunity to talk to other women who are going through similar experiences to your own and even make some new friends.
Bounce Back is a support group (the only one in the Warwick District Area,) run by and for local women who have had a Breast Cancer diagnosis. It could be for those newly diagnosed, undergoing treatment or some time on in their journey. It is a small, friendly group of women who have come together to share experiences, support each other and even have a laugh!
The group now hold informal meetings on the first Wednesday of each month in Leamington Spa and the second Wednesday of the month in Stratford Upon Avon, where you can drop in, join us for light refreshments and have a chat.
