Weekly Discussion Summary ~ Cancer doesn't define us

Cancer doesn’t define us.

Our discussion this week allowed us to celebrate who we are, and all our extraordinary experiences and abilities as we introduced ourselves without mentioning the C word. Our cancer is part of us but it doesn't define us.

We chose this - one of our most popular topics - as a way to welcome and get to know each other better. This was particularly timely as we have welcomed more than sixty new members to our private group following our post on the impact of hormonal treatment and brands. These women will now be in a position to benefit from, and contribute to, our work to build resilience following a breast cancer diagnosis.

In our private group we are united in that we all share that breast cancer diagnosis. Some of us have a primary diagnosis, others have experienced a new primary breast cancer, or recurrence and some of us have secondary breast cancer. We warmly welcome all women living in the UK with a diagnosis of breast cancer and we support each other through common experience and shared knowledge. We share our highs and lows, debunk common myths, keep an eye on the latest developments in diagnosis, screening and treatment, and take part in research.

Together we can make a difference.

If you are a woman living in the UK with a breast cancer diagnosis and you would like to join our private group, please send us a private message.

Thank you for your support!
