The Alexandra Hospital has celebrated their Breast Cancer Support Group’s first year anniversary with cake, music and an inspirational speech from its founding members.
On Thursday 14th March, specialist oncology consultants, nurses, cancer patients and their families were invited to the Breast Cancer Support Group’s first year anniversary. The event took place in the hospital’s private oncology ward, where guests were welcomed with canapes and fizz to celebrate the occasion.
The group meet on the second Thursday of every month, 6pm – 8pm, and are often joined by local charities or specialist consultants and nurses. It is open to anybody who has been affected by breast cancer, irrespective of where they were treated or where they are in their treatment journey. The group share stories and their experiences in a safe and supportive environment, which empowers members to speak out about their concerns and raise awareness around breast cancer in the community.
Annie, a founding member of the Breast Cancer Support Group, stated: ‘The Breast Cancer Support Group, at The Alexandra, is suitable for anybody who has been affected by breast cancer, regardless of where they have been treated. It is an opportunity to meet friendly people in the community and share stories and experiences. We are delighted to be celebrating its first year anniversary!’
A cancer diagnosis can have a huge impact on a patient, during and after treatment, and as a result, the Breast Cancer Support Group, at The Alexandra, is a fantastic initiative that provides ongoing support to those affected by breast cancer.
