Every 10 minutes someone hears the news that they have breast cancer. Breast Cancer Care offers a wide range of services to people affected by breast cancer, giving them the support and information they need in a variety of ways to suit them.
But it's not only those living with breast cancer who we help. We're here for family and friends when they need information and a shoulder to lean on. We're here for healthcare professionals who want to develop their knowledge and skills. And we're here for anyone who needs information on any aspect of breast health at any time.
Our free Helpline and information-packed website offer friendly, caring support and expert guidance to anyone dealing with the turmoil of this life-threatening illness. Across the UK we also offer professional support through a range of confidential, face-to-face services, helping people every step of the way. Our services are free and widely available thanks to the generosity of people like you. In the following video Win Wyatt, a former breast cancer patient who became a Breast Cancer Care volunteer, explains why Breast Cancer Care's services make such a difference:
Here's how your In Memory gift will make a difference to people affected by breast cancer:
£10 could give 10 people with breast cancer the vital answers they need right now by funding 10 valuable information resources.
'This pack was excellent from the time I was diagnosed and all the way through my treatment. Whenever I wasn’t sure of anything, I would go back to this pack and always found an answer. It is very reassuring to know what to expect next, and to be ready for it. I’d like to thank you very much.'
£30 could give a person affected by breast cancer the specialist information and support they need when they need it most through our Helpline.
'I cannot explain how much it helped talking to someone so caring, who knew exactly how you were feeling. The call was not rushed and I was able to ask all the questions that I wanted to. I cannot thank you enough for being there.'
£100 could give women with breast cancer somewhere to turn after their treatment by funding a facilitator on a Moving Forward course for four hours.
'I found the course very informative and reassuring. It helped to know how others deal with similar problems. Thank you to Breast Cancer Care and all the people who have helped us on the course.'
