On this informal and relaxed day, you will learn all about what Breast Cancer Haven can offer, what emotional support, therapies, classes and seminars are available and how we can support you throughout your medical treatment and afterwards.

You will meet other women all of who will have been affected by breast cancer. They could be at any stage of treatment or even post-treatment and this is a good opportunity to share stories, ask questions or just sit quietly and listen.
