Bosom Friends - Bradford
We are a small patient led support group offering friendship, fun and support to ladies and their families who are effected by breast cancer. The group is patient led, but with support from the Breast Care Team who attend some of the meetings to give us updates on treatments and new surgical techniques, and they are always on the end of the phone/email should we need to contact them.
Bosom Friends is a registered charity and we rely entirely on fund raising and voluntary donations. Funds raised are used in a number of ways to benefit women being treated in Bradford. In some circumstances we can provide financial support e.g to purchase specialised underwear. We help the Cancer Support Centre with funding for a Complementary Therapist, have in the past bought specialised beds and other furniture and home comforts for the Breast Care Ward and are currently helping make the Dales Suite a pleasant and welcoming place.
Bosom Friends has been running around 30 years, since it was set up by Sister Norma Russell, the Bradford Breast Care Nurse, to provide friendship, help and support to women with breast cancer and to their families. The group is now patient led, but with support from the Breast Care Team who attend some of the meetings to give us updates on treatments and new surgical techniques.
We meet on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 7pm at the Cancer Support Centre on Smith Lane. The meetings are friendly social events, an opportunity to chat over a cup of tea with other women who are living with or beyond breast cancer. Much of the emphasis is about getting on with life with or after cancer and the content of the evening meeting varies from talks from guest speakers to quizzes, jewellery parties, belly dancing and other fun activities.
