We are a Breast Cancer support group based in Brighton
Cancer can be scary, and an experience which others can find hard to deal with or understand if they have not experienced themselves, which is why we are here.
We started the group in 1996 as a way to let out our feelings and share our cancer experience in a confidential yet fun and easygoing way- and have been meeting once a month ever since!
We meet at the Brighton Macmillan Horizon Centre on the third Monday of every month from 6:15pm- 8:15pm
"Sometimes we can just be there to sit and listen, we don't even need to talk..."
We share experiences, give advice, offer a shoulder for when times get hard, and a place to have fun. (Oh, and we like to laugh. A lot.)
Whether sitting in and talking, going out for a picnic or trying one of the many activities on offer at the center it is a respite and place to escape to, to be with others who understand how you're feeling.
"The meetings with Breast Cancer Support Group Sussex help me a lot. It's so helpful to be surrounded by like-minded people who have all gone through a similar experience to myself. And it's good fun!"
"Breast Cancer Support Sussex took away the isolation and made me realise I really am not alone"
One of the best things about a support group is that you are surrounded by like-minded people who support each-other and know just what you're going through. We are there for the tears but also for all the fun times and support too.
