Hi Billiegirl
I’m not in Bermondsey but on the other side of London but if you are mobile you might want to try the Breast Cancer Haven at Fulham Broadway They have lots of drop in things, but you can go to an introduction day and they arrange a personal programme for you where you can have a number of sessions to help you cope with diagnosis and treatment like accupuncture, nutrition, massage etc. They also have a younger womens group which meets once a month (next one on 14/4 at 10.30am) I’ve been going there for about six weeks and just found it really helpful and supportive.I started going when I felt well enough to go out after my WLEs. What stage are you at?

hello julie thank you for the info will have a look at that site tonight i have invasive ductal carcinoma im grade 3 stage 2 im starting chemotherapy this week coming to reduce the size of the tumour

I’m in East London but I have also been refered to the Haven. I’m going to the next young womens meeting on the 14th if possible. I have had a mx and reconstruction and I will be starting chemo on the 9th April.
