Hi Kaz
Have you heard about the Haven in Leeds. Don’t know how to describe it but it is a charity run place that provides therapy and support for people who have or have had BC and their families. I heard about it on the Forum and I’ve been going for the past few weeks. It is an amazing place and the staff are fantastic. I don’t know how to do links but just Google it and have a look.
Keep in touch
