Almost 3,000 people each year are having treatment for breast cancer in the Wessex region, which includes Hampshire and its bordering counties. That's 1 in 8 of us.

Having breast cancer can take a massive emotional toll on a family and the medical treatment can have some debilitating physical side-effects too.

At Breast Cancer Haven in Wessex we support people through this time with a programme of care tailored around their particular symptoms and concerns.

Each person that we help is offered 12 free hours of support from our team of counsellors, therapists and healthcare professionals. Our services are free - so that everyone who needs us can come.

But we can't do it without you. We rely on our local community to raise the funds to keep this vital support service running for families in the Wessex area. 

We need to raise around £1,000 for each person that we support and need £xxx a year to meet the growing needs of our local community. 

So, thank you for donating or fundraising for Breast Cancer Haven in Wessex. It will help to make a real difference to someone's life through a really dark time.
