Testimonial - Helen Richardson
Clare and Derwentside Breast Friends was a massive source of inspiration when I was first diagnosed with breast cancer. Knowing that Clare had had breast cancer but was now ok was hugely reassuring. And for that reason, I'm so pleased she decided to set this group up as there was nothing in the Consett area. I've met some lovely ladies at the group and hopefully made some lifelong friends. Having a local group is so important when you're going through something like this and no matter how good your friends and family are unless they've had breast cancer they don't really know what you're going through. We also have a WhatsApp group so if you need to ask something or just to have a bit of a moan there's always someone there for support. The social events are an added bonus!
