Live Chat

We know that sometimes it can be difficult to talk with someone face-to-face or over the phone about breast cancer. Live Chat is a private chat room where you can talk to others in a similar situation about the challenges you’re facing.

All our Live Chat sessions are overseen by an experienced moderator and a specialist nurse who are on hand to answer any questions you may have.

When can I use Live Chat?

Once you’ve registered, join us for the Live Chat session that is most suitable for you. You can even use Live Chat on your mobile phone or tablet. We run two Live Chat sessions each week. 

Secondary breast cancer Live Chat: Join us every Tuesday 8.30-9.30pm. This session is only open to people with a diagnosis of secondary breast cancer, which is when the cancer has spread to another part of the body.

General breast cancer Live Chat: Join us every Thursday 8.30pm – 9.30pm. This session is only open to people with a diagnosis of breast cancer.

If you don’t have a breast cancer diagnosis but are worried about an upcoming appointment with your doctor or a specialist clinic, please call our helpline or use our forums for support.
