Breast Cancer Haven in Yorkshire 

Based in Leeds, Breast Cancer Haven helps people from all over Yorkshire.

It recently celebrated its 10 year anniversary, and released figures on the number of people they've helped. 

  • Breast Cancer Haven has supported over 3,800 people in that time 
  • It's provided 48,000 hours of professional therapy since it first launched 
  • As well as therapy and counselling it offers support days 

Dr Sarah Gardiner from Harrogate was diagnosed with breast cancer in December 2017 and says she sought the help of the charity and now wants to help raise awareness. 

Dr Gardiner said: 

"It's the only one in the North. Even though I live in Harrogate, I've been told not many people in Harrogate are not aware of the existence of the Haven."

May Norman from Stray FM's Health and Wellbeing Show talked to Sarah Gardiner and Lizzie Philpott from the charity:
