Advice & Support
In Northampton we are lucky to have some amazing charities providing support to those who need it most. Of course, we are here to support you too, so feel free to reach out to us.
Below are some useful links for charities and organisations that may be able to provide support or help to you following a Breast Cancer diagnosis.
Local Cancer Support
The Lewis Foundation
The Lewis Foundation aims to provide comfort and happiness to cancer patients receiving cancer treatment on Talbot Butler Ward at Northampton General Hospital. This is achieved by providing patients with a variety of gift packs and whilst these items may not, at face value, seem important, when on the ward they can be very important.
The Lighthouse Centre
The Lighthouse Centre is a complementary therapy unit offering holistic therapies for people with long term conditions and cancers in their own home. The centre is patient orientated with the patients needs at the centre of any therapy or treatment that is prescribed. The Lighthouse Centre is run by nurses and health care staff who have a wealth of experience behind them to ensure that the best possible treatment is identified and given to each patient, with the patients' personal needs at the centre of any treatment chosen.
For all those living with a life threatening illness, every day deserves to be treated as precious. The pressures of diagnosis, treatment and recovery can have a devastating effect on work and family life. Willow aims to redress the balance: providing unique and unforgettable Special Days, for adults 40 and under, tailored to their needs. Every effort is made to ensure a stress free, seamless experience, not just meeting but exceeding their expectations.

We have the knowledge and understanding to help you manage the impact of cancer in every area of your life, no matter what type of cancer you have or at what stage you come to us. We run a range of services including courses, groups and individual therapies designed to help you feel better and live better with cancer, its treatments and side effects.
