Bosom Pals (MK)

Welcome to Bosom Pals (MK)

Bosom Pals is a primary Breast Cancer Support Group in Milton Keynes and is run wholly by patients.

1991 the group was established by two breast cancer patients with the help of the breast care nurse at Milton Keynes Hospital. At that time there was limited information and no one to talk to about is a frightening situation.  Since then the group has gone from strength to strength and helped many who have experienced breast cancer and their families. 

2014 we also invited ladies treated for a Gynaecological cancer to join us because there is nothing provided locally.

2015 we first provided Goodie bags for all breast and gynae patients having surgery in Milton Keynes University Hospital.  Later the breast care nurses asked that we provide a Goodie bag suitable for men having breast surgery.

This led to our first contact from a man with breast cancer.  Since then we have introduced "Open evenings" where men with experience of breast cancer can join us.  Usually these are special interest and information evenings. Men are always welcome to join us at our Dobbies afternoon “tea and cake” meetings, which are relaxed and friendly. Other opportunities open to all, including family and friends, are our summer barbecue, Christmas party, Christmas meal and theatre outings.
