As a Breast Cancer, Surviour I know that we are not defined by our illness we have physical, mental and emotional needs to process. Sound helped me during my treatment and continues to every day of my life. As a sound therapist, I am privileged to help people with illnesses, life-limiting beliefs
and much more with sound baths and 1:2:1 treatment.
Elizabeth Hurley came to Breast Cancer Haven Titchfield to bring awareness to the charity she has been involved with Estee Lauder in the research of breast cancer for 30 years in which they are looking at cortisol levels in the body and how to reduce this at times of stress
I was privileged to have her visit my sound bath session

Dealing with breast cancer at Christmas
Breast Cancer Haven
Christmas can be a time with high expectations of happy gatherings, but when you have a diagnosis of breast cancer, it may not bring the laughter and joy that is expected. It may be exhausting trying to carry on with the festivities and putting on a brave face for others. You may also not have shared the news so that people treat you no differently to normal.
Whatever your situation, the pressure and exhaustion of dealing with a diagnosis, treatment or the aftermath of treatment can be huge and with the expectation of Christmas, the impact is emotionally tiring.
We all process information in our own unique way through our own ‘life lens’ – through our own thoughts, feelings, and memories. It is important to make some ‘ME’ time to be able to step away, breathe, release the brave face and be able to relax and be yourself.
Christmas comes and goes and the challenges we face may remain. Whatever is here and lies ahead, Breast Cancer Haven is here to support you. It is important to look after yourself with care and kindness over this festive period and beyond.

Thank you for talking about it
with Marian Parfitt Breast Cancer Haven Titchfield Manager
I thank Glenn for the amazing support as volunteer and ambassador for Breast Cancer Haven for speaking out and up in his wonderfully funny courageous and knowledgeable way and especially for highlighting that men get Breast Cancer too.
Sonj and the team
Sadly Glenn Passed Away but remains in the memories and hearts of all those who knew him.
He was a great ambassador for the awareness of
male breast cancer and would want the awareness of this to carry on for the hope of others
Rest in Peace
Sadly missed but absolutely never forgotten
