Breast Friends

Breast Friends Support Group


Breast Friends is an online community for those with an experience of Breast Cancer, living or being treated in Suffolk or Essex. The group, formed by two breast cancer patients, aims to offer peer support to anyone at any stage of their breast cancer journey.

Advice and support

The founders, Caroline and Janine, host a private Facebook group and also a Linktree page that provides a forum for members to ask questions, share experiences and chat with others.

Monthly social events are also organised which provide members with an opportunity to connect in person.
