Supporting women whose lives have been touched by breast cancer

Other peoples reactions

Family and friends are often at a loss as to how to react when we tell them we have had a diagnosis of breast cancer.

These pages contain the comments of some of our members on the way people around them have reacted when told. Please try NOT to repeat any of the mistakes made on the Other Peoples Reactions page.


How to react is a guide written by one of our members who is currently living through the treatment for her second diagnosis of breast cancer after having another, unrelated, cancer. She has lived through this 3 times so knows what she is talking about. Please DO follow her advice.
