Everyone going through breast cancer needs support in different ways. A diagnosis of breast cancer turns your world upside down and you may be facing many difficult emotions as you go through your treatment and beyond.

Find out how people can approach changes in body image such as losing your hair or having a mastectomy.
Hear what it can be like for people close to you, including partners, family and friends. You can hear how helpful it is to know that other people are feeling the same way as you are.
