Welcome to Bosom Friends
We are your friendly and informal Breast Cancer Support Group.Our support
group is NOT a group therapy gathering ( which is a more formal group usually run by professionals, where people are encouraged to express personal feelings as part of their treatment ).
Our support group is a friendly and sociable get-together. A wholly voluntary-run group, we have all been diagnosed with breast cancer, and are currently being treated, or have completed treatments in the past.
We are, therefore, in a very good position to offer support, comfort and understanding to each other, and to YOU!
We also offer practical help and suggestions, useful and up-to-date information,
plus signposting to Professional agencies should you need advice..
Our monthly meetings sometimes incorporate guest speakers and events.
Importantly, we offer an understanding voice at the end of the phone, if you need it. (Contact Us).
Our MONTHLY MEETINGS are held on the FIRST MONDAY of each month (excluding Bank Holidays), usually in voluntees� homes.
Tea, herbal teas, coffee, cake and biscuits (incl. dairy free) etc, and chat are the order of the day!
Please telephone to check the forthcoming venue. Any of the contacts below will be happy to introduce you to the group.
Once a year we go out for a very jolly Christmas Lunch (optional).
Bosom Friends was formed in 1991, by two women who wanted to ensure that others in Oxfordshire should not feel the same isolation that they had experienced, following the diagnosis of breast cancer and their subsequent treatment. They wanted to provide support to patients, former patients, their friends, partners and relatives:
All are welcome.
This is what we are all about.We look forward to meeting you!
