Your help through the toughest times
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Do you want advice on how to check your breasts? Or perhaps you’re concerned about family history. In any case, you can speak in confidence to our Information & Support Manager for advice.
Bringing together the expertise of our nutritional therapists and packed full of your favourite dishes from our Haven kitchen, the recipes are not only delicious but are designed to provide balanced meals whether your are having treatment for breast cancer or whether you just want to develop healthier eating habits.
