BAWP are exploring offering ‘a shoulder to lean on’ service for those staff suffering with breast cancer and their partners.
Have you experienced Breast Cancer?
Are you the partner to a woman who has had or has breast cancer?
Would you be prepared to share your experiences? Bust some myths!
As a “shoulder to lean on” we won’t be trained volunteers or counsellors but we could be there to talk to officers and staff and listen to their concerns. May be explaining what it was like to go through events such as: Being recalled after the mammogram, an MRI scan, the surgery, a Dexa Scan etc.
We would point colleagues in the direction of the charities or professionals for counselling or medical support
