Breast Friends and Family

Breast Friends and Family aims to support patients through a breast cancer diagnosis, treatment and recovery.

To provide the little things that the NHS are not in a position to, little things that will make a difference to individual patients and how they feel about themselves.

The charity is currently working closely with the Breast Care Nurses in the Oncology Unit at St John’s Hospital in Livingston, to bring those little things to the patients who need them.

These currently include:

  • Mastectomy bras for patients facing breast surgery
  • Patient Bags including products to help ease the side effects of chemotherapy
  • Axillary lymph node medical ID bands to assist patient care throughout treatment
  • Cooling towels for patient experiencing menopausal symptoms through treatment
  • Water bottles to encourage patients to keep hydrated
  • Headscarfs and advice on hair loss through chemotherapy from our experienced volunteers
