"I had three lovely massages,
which went to the right spot, what I needed -
the sessions were lovely. After chemo, my legs
were very weak and the massage really has helped me."
Gisele, aged 48
"This service and support has helped me accept
what has happened - breast cancer is hard enough,
the aftermath is a struggle, you feel so lonely
and lost. The service has been a lifeline to me."
Jodi, age 29
OUR LONG TERM AIM IS TO OPEN FUTURE DREAMS HOUSE. THE NEW LONDON HOME TO BREAST CANCER HAVEN.
The central location of Future Dreams House allows more patients based in central, north and east London to utilise the much needed services provided, completely free of charge. These therapies will address the physical and emotional symptoms and side effects of each woman's medical treatment. Function support will include image workshops, life-coaching, finacial advice and nutritional advice on excersize and healthy eating.
Perhaps the most vital function of FDH is to provide a non-medical environment in which women can form friendships and networks that will help them to take on this disease from a place of solidarity and empowerment.
"Three years on from my Breast Cancer diagnosis and my third breast cancer surgery, I still rely on the incredible services of Breast Cancer Haven, and I couldn't manage without their support. They are a vital part of my mental and physical recovery for both me and my family. The thought of Breast Cancer Haven losing it's building is devastating to me and to so many who rely on it."
Kim, BCH Fulham visitor
THE CAMPAIGN TO OPEN FUTURE DREAMS HOUSE HAS NEVER BEEN MORE PRESSING.
BREAST CANCER HAVEN WILL BE IN NEED OF A NEW LONDON BASE FROM 2019
WHEN THE LEASE ON IT'S CURRENT BUILDING EXPIRES.
