Breast Cancer and Brain Tumour Support Groups
Breast Cancer Support Group
The breast cancer support group is an open group for patients with a diagnosis of breast cancer. Established in 2006, it is located in St. Luke's Hospital and is supported by medical social workers and a clinical nurse specialist.
This group aims to provide information and support to those undergoing treatment for a breast cancer diagnosis. The plan is that the group will meet two to three times annually, from 2012.

It is one of three national groups. The other two are in Galway and Cork. It meets in St. Luke's Hospital in Rathgar on the second Wednesday of each month.
