Open day for breast cancer survivors

A health and wellbeing open day is being held on Monday 27 April for survivors of breast cancer in the Redditch and Bromsgrove area.

The event, being held at Primrose Hospice in Bromsgrove, has been organised by specialist breast care nurses Mandy Batten and Julie Weston.

Taster sessions will be on offer during the event to highlight what services are available to help those diagnosed with breast cancer live a fuller life.

Julie Weston, breast care specialist nurse said “We’ve been running our Bosom Friends support group for 20 years now. This open day is a great opportunity for us to meet some new faces and introduce them to people who have already been through the same journey.

“At our meetings we provide practical advice and support as well as up to date information about treatments and survival.

“A breast cancer diagnosis can be daunting for males and females of all ages. We know it may be hard to walk through the doors for the first time. So, if you are considering giving Bosom Friends support group a try, but feel anxious about taking that first step, do not hesitate to contact us.”

Drop by the open event from 3pm to 6pm on Monday 27 April at Primrose Hospice, St Godwalds Road, Bromsgrove, B60 3BW.
