The Wessex Haven provides a wide range of support to help people manage the psychological, practical and physical side-effects of breast cancer. One in eight women are at risk of developing breast cancer in their lifetime and around 50,000 are diagnosed each year. 3000 new patients are diagnosed each year in the Wessex region.

At The Wessex Haven our clinical nurse specialists will assess each visitor and advise on an individualised program of therapies, which include counselling, acupuncture, massage and nutritional therapy. Many patients can benefit from The Wessex Haven's specialist help and support. £1000 will pay for a visitor to have 10 free hours of therapy at The Wessex Haven.
