Friendship and Understanding
Breast Friends Solihull welcomes both National Health and Private Sector patients who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. The group helps local ladies from the initial diagnosis, when much seems frightening and unknown, all through treatment and recovery. We are a group of positive ladies who have all experienced breast cancer; we meet in a social environment on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 7.15pm at the Bridge Club, 909 Warwick Road, Solihull B91 3EP. New members are very welcome to bring along a female friend or relative.
Many good friendships are made when ladies get together at our monthly meetings for informative talks from medical professionals or other lighter hearted topics. Afterwards there is an opportunity to chat informally over coffee with other members and share experiences. We also organise enjoyable social events such as walks and meals which allow members to meet up and chat together in a relaxed atmosphere and often include partners and family.
Professional and Practical Support
The group is run voluntarily by ladies who have all experienced breast cancer and is supported by the expertise of consultant surgeons, oncologists, specialist doctors and nurses who give up their valuable time to speak at our meetings and provide up-to-date information on developments in treatment. On a practical level Breast Friends can offer financial help towards many support services to help women going through this difficult time.
