Finding out you have cancer is traumatic. The added stress of the appearance related side-effects can be demoralising and feel overwhelming, which can have serious consequences at a time when a positive attitude is vital.
The first Workshop for women was held 25 years ago and since then the charity has developed special sessions for young adults and, in 2018, introduced vitally needed services for men. Each group session is led by trained volunteers and is a chance to meet others in a similar situation, as well as learning useful skills and techniques to manage the side-effects of cancer treatment.
Our latest awareness videos (below) features LGFB beneficiaries and volunteers talking about their experiences and really encapsulates the positive impact of the Workshops.
