One place that has given me much support after my breast cancer treatment is the Breast Cancer Haven. This is a centre that welcomes all women (and men) who have breast cancer through its doors. They also provide support for loved-ones.

 
It is truly a 'haven'. The London site is actually a converted church! As soon as you walk through its doors, you feel at home. With its plush couches, kitchenette area and friendly faces, it is a welcoming place.


During my countless visits there, I have met quite a few ladies who have gone through - or are going through - breast cancer treatment. Breast Cancer Haven offers therapeutic treatments such as acupuncture and reflexology; emotional support; and nutritional and financial advice. There are also fantastic exercise, relaxation and meditation classes as well as seminars and workshops on a wide range of topics. Did I mention the yummy, healthy lunches that the volunteers prepare? I could not ask for a better place.
