A HAVEN to support women with breast cancer is finally set to open its doors in Solihull.
National support charity Breast Cancer Haven has secured a three-storey Edwardian property in the borough to provide free support to breast cancer patients and their families.
The new centre will offer services not available under the NHS for free of charge – including vital one-to-one support and advice.
And with the help of sponsor Western Power Distribution, the centre is hosting an awareness week from October 16 to 22 at Grand Central in Birmingham to demonstrate its services and spread the word to some 2,500 people in the area affected by breast cancer.
Offering drop-ins, welfare and money guidance, support groups, a variety of workshops, meditation and exercise group classes, demand for the centre has been made clear by specialists living the West Midlands.
Centre spokesman Matthew Price said: “We are delighted with the support of Western Power Distribution – West Midlands, they have sponsored the entire week which allows us spread awareness of our services to as many of the thousands of women living with breast cancer in the West Midlands as possible. It also provides us with the opportunity to talk to the public to learn which services they would like to see at our centre.”
