Let's make life-changing support happen

Posted on July 17, 2019

In April, Breast Cancer Now joined forces with Breast Cancer Care to create one charity. So, this year, along with helping to fund life-saving research, the money you raise by wearing it pink will help us to fund support for people affected by breast cancer. We wanted to share with you just some of the incredible services you’ll be helping to make happen.

Wear It Pink Help Make Life Saving Research Happen Blog

We want everyone to have the care they deserve, whether they have concerns, have just been diagnosed, or have finished treatment. Our free services offer tailored information and support to anyone affected by breast cancer.

Moving Forward courses

Our courses provide practical tips for dealing with side effects of treatment, adopting a healthy lifestyle, and coping with anxiety, helping people self-manage and find their 'new normal’ after breast cancer treatment.

Living with Secondary Breast Cancer

Our monthly sessions allow people to talk openly in a safe space with others who may share their experience, helping them come to terms with their diagnosis.

Someone Like Me service

We put people in touch with a trained volunteer who has had a similar experience, so they can discuss anything from concerns around genetic testing to having a friend or family member diagnosed.

Younger Women Together

Many younger women with breast cancer may feel alone or isolated. Our events bring together women aged 30-45 who’ve had a primary

diagnosis, providing information specific to their age group.

Speak to our nurses

Whether it's making sense of medical information, discussing concerns or finding support, our nurses are here for anyone affected by breast cancer through our free Helpline and email services.

Our free app

More than half of women experience anxiety after treatment ends. BECCA is our award-winning, free app with tips on life beyond a breast cancer diagnosis, helping people adapt to their new 'normal'.

Our forum community

A safe and caring online community for anyone seeking information or support from others going through breast cancer, at any time of day or night.
