Providing support and friendship to all those affected by Breast Cancer

About Us

Cancer Support Group Southend 2

Bosom Pals Support Group are a voluntary, non-profit making organisation who work closely with the Breast Care nurses at Southend Hospital by attending the ATMO meetings held by the hospital for those signed off after treatment, which is a time when it is possible to feel very alone and isolated with your fears. The group, open to men and women, has been running for over 20 years, and all members have either undergone or are in the process of receiving treatment.


Breast cancer can happen to anyone regardless of age, sex or ethnicity.  We offer a cup of tea, a friendly ear, encouragement and, overall, lots of laughter. We have a Facebook group, open only to members, where you will find support and a comforting word when needed.
