Standing right beside women through their breast cancer treatment is the charity Breast Cancer Haven.
Almost 3,000 people are currently in treatment in the Wessex region which includes Hampshire and its bordering counties and the charity expects to provide 4,000 appointments annually.
Anyone can visit the centre, whether you have just been diagnosed, are in treatment or in recovery. No referral is needed, you can just contact the centre, and the charity also helps men suffering breast cancer.
A charity spokesman said: “Breast Cancer Haven is the charity that supports women through their breast cancer treatment. When breast cancer tries to rob a woman of her individuality, her confidence or her strength, we provide the tailored package of emotional, physical and practical support that helps her hold on to them. We’re there to provide women with breast cancer the support that treatment alone can’t.
“We offer advice on practical things like money and work, help combating stress, exhaustion and nausea, advice on healthy eating and exercise. And above all, there will always be someone to talk to about your deepest fears. Our support is free of charge and available in our beautiful Breast Cancer Haven centres.”
If you can’t get to one of the centres help is also available over the telephone or via our Haven at Home DVD which you can order free of charge from our shop.
