One of the main benefits of a support group is that you can be with like-minded people, everyone supports each other, so it takes away that feeling of isolation and replaces it with feelings of 'you are not alone' – we can cry together, but more importantly we can laugh together. And we often do!

Mel’s Story

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in October 2014. To be told the words ‘you have cancer’ was without doubt the most terrifying thing that had ever happened to me. From then on it was a round of hospital appointments, tests, operations, more tests, waiting for results (which has to be the worst of all) and so on.
