Moreover, our monthly meetings provide an opportunity to meet together informally with ladies who have experienced breast cancer and understand its impact on life. The Breast Friends Bulletin informs members and supporters of the charity’s activities about forthcoming events and items of general interest.

All Breast Friends contributions are subject to Committee approval and financial constraints.
