We are a Breast Cancer Support group based in the Macmillan Horizon Centre in Brighton.
We meet on the third Monday of every month from 6.30-8.30pm and you can either pop in for a chat and a cup of tea or stay for the duration.
Whether you are suffering from cancer, have just completed treatment, had it in the past, or you have a relative with it, we will make sure to be there every step of the way.
We arrange outings- why does cancer have to be restricting? From meals out in restaurants, to viewing relevant exhibitions or simply enjoying a picnic in the park, we like to have fun (and lots of it!)
We also arrange various talks and events to help inform and educate you on different topics and our Macmillan nurse is always on hand for any questions you might have.
"I find the meetings so helpful. Not only are they great for having a catch up, but the speakers which are arranged are very informative and interesting."
We provide an opportunity for you to recuperate. We know cancer can be draining and offer some time off when you can offload and just have some fun and a really good cup of tea.
There is plenty of potential to make lots of new friends and with all of our fun outings (we recently went on an exciting tour round Harvey's Brewery and have an annual picnic in the park) there's lots of time to catch up and get to know one another.
In the past we have had talks from Makeup artist Tori Harris on how to draw in eyebrows and eyelashes as well as dealing with side-effects of treatment such as rosacea to Professor Malcolm Reed on different treatment choices for Breast Cancer.
As well as all of the serious stuff, we make sure to have a lot of fun!
