Weekly Discussions

Be the first to comment!
Our guided, weekly evening discussions centre around the many challenges we face as women living with breast cancer and its effects. Where relevant, we refer to research and theory, and our discussions offer an opportunity to share our emotions and experiences as well as engage in lively debate.
Topics have been richly varied, including work, diet, how to talk to children, the meaning of life, secondary breast cancer, emotional suppression, chemo-brain, post-traumatic growth and finding happiness in the little things.
If you are a woman living in the UK with a diagnosis of breast cancer and you would like to join our private group, please contact us through our public facebook page: Centre for Building Resilience in Breast Cancer
