'2nds Together' - Supporting Secondary Breast Cancer Patients

Living with a secondary breast cancer diagnosis is both mentally and physically cruelling for patients and those closest to them. During the current COVID-19 situation life is even more unpredictable.
Through the implementation of support specifically for secondary breast cancer patients and their families we aim to help patients to navigate some of the hurdles they face as a result of this time.
Working with medical professionals and through the provision of peer to peer support if required we can assist with joining 2nds Together in times of uncertainty.

'Tea & A Chat' - Supporting Secondary Breast Cancer Patients

The coronavirus situation has shaken us all and changed our lives in many different ways! So, we thought it'd be a good idea to sit down together (virtually) for a Tea & A Chat!
Meet regularly, every 2nd Tuesday at 12 noon and Thursday at 7.30 pm, for a virtual chat (with tea of course) to catch up, support each other and get through this time together! We will also schedule special guests to these group chats for extra support.
We also offer a 1:1 virtual call with one of our Patient Champions. We know that seeing a friendly face who understands what you are going through can be greatly beneficial.

Counselling with Cancer

Claire believes ‘Cancer Changes Everything Forever’ and it is so important to look after yourself Mentally, Emotionally and Physically whether you are the patient, the family or the friend.

Main issues cancer patients have when they come to you:
There are so many reasons clients come to me who have been affected by cancer, some are trying to come to terms with their cancer or diagnosis, or family members are looking for ways of supporting their families or trying to cope with the tragic news, friends are coming to terms with the news and wonder what to say or do, patients feel like they have lost their identity and want to be who they are and not the C word and then of course there is bereavement. Some of my clients are young adults that have been through their teenage years watching their parent be unwell and having to grow up very quickly and then coming to terms with their loss. Cancer is such a destructive disease it leaves a huge ripple effect through their families and friends. Cancer really does affect everyone and everything around them

Cruse Bereavement Care

Cruse Bereavement Care is the leading national charity for bereaved people in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Drain Dollies

Before I went in for my surgery I searched high and low for surgical drain bags. I knew I was going to be discharged from hospital with these drains, how was I to manage? I knew I was going to have drains in for at least 12 days and didn't want to be house bound. Equally though I didn't want to get funny looks in the street or feel embarrassed.
Unfortunately hospitals do not readily give out things to contain the drains in for patients use and I saw ladies using plastic carrier bags and pillow cases. It is so inconvenient not having the use of your hands. There is no reason to be house bound after breast surgery by any means, these bags enable you to get out and about which will aid your recovery process. They also come in some really nice patterns and colours to give you that extra boost when your feeling lousy and not so good about yourself.

From Me To You

Something as simple as receiving a letter can make the world of difference to a friend or family member suffering from cancer.
We all too often hear that emotional support disappears as patients embark on surgery and treatment, as those close to them just don’t know what to say or how to communicate.
It’s only the cost of a stamp but the effect on the person receiving your letter will be immeasurable.

The BRIC Centre

BRiC's research aims to reduce anxiety and depressive vulnerability in women with a breast cancer diagnosis and improve quality of life using evidence-based translational neuroscience research. It's main aim is to build resilience.
Resilience is the practice of adaptation, flexibility, and adjustment. When confronted with a life-threatening disease such as breast cancer, options become limited, priorities change, and we struggle to find our new 'normal'. Practicing resilience can help us endure the emotional roller coasters, and manage our emotions more efficiently. Resilience builds on neuroplasticity: the brain's ability to form new neural connections towards better mental and physical health.

The C List

Having the C Bomb dropped on you is hard enough... potentially losing your hair is an extra unwelcomed twist and THEN being told your beauty regime is semi out the window really makes the diagnosis a fun sponge . Most of us want to feel and look as normal as possible but how easy is it to find those more gentle products which still give us results?

This is exactly why we created The C List. It's a one-stop shop to all things beauty when it comes to being on cancer treatment. Plus all profits go back into the C List Community - so we can gift one of YOU every month (frankly you deserve it)

The Osborne Trust

The Trust provides children aged 16 years and under whose parent/s have cancer access to recreational activities during a parent/s treatment by funding up to 3 activities such as a cinema trip, play centre visit or a meal out.

The Treatment Bag

Every bag is lovingly packed, wrapped and despatched...
When the bags arrive in deepest Somerset, our volunteers collate our selection of goodies, (generously donated or discounted by our amazing suppliers), and carefully hand-wrap each one.
The bags are tagged and distributed by a network of fantastic Treatment Bag friends.
We donate the bags to organisations, and also hand them out to private individuals.

Ticking Off Breast Cancer

With this website I have aimed to provide practical advice for men and women standing at the edge of the breast cancer precipice not knowing which way to turn (and for their partners, families and friends who would like to know how to help). It is for anyone with any stage of breast cancer. Some sections will be more relevant to people with primary breast cancer, and others may be of more interest to people with secondary breast cancer. Everyone is welcome.
It’s a basic website that focuses on what to expect at each step of the way, together with plenty of practical checklists that you can use when preparing for/undergoing each stage of treatment. And if you want to look into anything in more detail then you can click through the links. For those of you looking for answers, options, guidance or detailed information this will be a good starting point and you will be able to click through all the external links to carry out your research.
