Breast cancer support designed for you

I've just been diagnosed

You may be in shock, feeling frightened or just numb. The Haven can support you and your family with emotional support and information about what happens next. 

I'm having treatment

Treatment for breast cancer is essential. But we know that the process can take its toll on your health and wellbeing. Our support will help you better manage the unpleasant side-effects from treatment.

I've finished treatment – what next?

Now that your treatment is over you may still be feeling vulnerable and unsure of your future. We can help you move and give you the tools to lead a healthy and balanced life.

My cancer has come back

Your cancer may have recurred or you have been diagnosed with secondary breast cancer. Our trained nurses and counsellors can discuss what this means for you and will plan a support package to help you through this difficult time. 

Someone close to me has breast cancer

Having a partner, relative or friend diagnosed with breast cancer can be an emotional rollercoaster. Our experienced counsellors can take the time to listen to your concerns and help you to come to terms with this diagnosis.
