  Lewis & Harris Women’s Cancer Support Group


    Group Background

 The Group was originally founded in 1998 as a specific breast cancer support group in order to fill a gap in  the provision of support for those affected by breast cancer.

 After 18 years of providing that support & information, the Group agreed to change to an all-cancer support  group for women affected by any cancer.

 Subsequently, in November 2015 it was unanimously agreed by all Group members and authorised by OSCR  to change the name to:     

   Lewis & Harris Women's Cancer Support Group


    Aims and Objectives

  The aims of the Group are to alleviate the suffering and distress, and advance the education, of women   affected   by any cancer and their relatives and friends.  In furtherance thereof:

  1) Offer emotional support & information to women affected by cancer

  2) Support each other, giving time and space to talk about fears  & grief

  3) Listen and respond with sensitivity, respecting confidentiality & not imposing personal preferences and      values on others.
