Annual General Meeting 2021Our AGM in the 2020 March Social Meeting was one of the first victims of the lockdown and so we held a ‘virtual’ AGM in June. With restrictions still in place about numbers meeting indoors and our reliance on the Cancer Support Centre (which remains closed to visitors) as a location to meet, we are having to hold another virtual AGM this year.The following www.BosomFriendsBradford.org/AGM is a link to the Annual Report for 2020 and Agenda for the virtual meeting. If there are any comments or questions arising, please contact us on info@BosomFriendsBradford.org and we will respond to these. If there are no objections by the 30th June, we will assume that the Annual Report and Agenda are approved.Whilst the Cancer Support Centre remains unavailable we are exploring options for alternative meeting places to resume social meetings in July, though this will have to remain dependant on the changing rules due to Covid. We will post as soon as we have further news. ... See MoreSee Less

I’m probably going to get a lot of stick for this, pinching people’s photos and posting them all over social media.... but I don’t care!This week, is national #VolunteersWeek, 1-7th June, which has been celebrated for over 20 years.Did you know Bosom Friends is entirely run by a small committee of #volunteers. We meet as a committee once a month, we plan your monthly social evenings, arrange the weekend away, organise the annual fashion show, buy and distribute gifts for newly diagnosed breast cancer ladies, make special cushions for use after breast surgery, work out finances to pay for extra bits for the hospital; furniture, decorations to rooms, areola tattoo training for the nurses.... to name a few.Without this amazing group of ladies, pictured here, Bosom Friends would not run. We do of course need YOU. Without you, we wouldn’t have a need to run.So THANK YOU to each and every one who comes to Bosom Friends, who supports us, and likes our page. Hopefully we can actually meet up again soon!Julia 💕 ... See MoreSee Less

One of our ladies Jane, wanted to share her new tattoo and how Bosom Friends have helped and supported her over the years.In her own words......“Well it's been 4 years since my breast surgery and what a journey it has been. I became an unofficial member of Bosom Friends over 20 years ago when my mum was diagnosed with breast cancer. I would accompany her to monthly meetings and also assisted at their fashion shows when mum had the pleasure of being a model at their annual fashion shows. I was always made welcome and admired the strength of the ladies fighting with their diagnosis.It was always a waiting game for me, as both my sisters were also diagnosed years before me despite us all being told we were not at risk. Well I finally got my turn and became an official member of Bosom Friends 4 years ago. I opted for a double mastectomy and my journey began. I became stronger and more confident after my surgery and was determined the disease would not beat me. I was never fearful as I had my Bosom Friends family to support me. I have had the privilege of being a model 3 times and also become a committee member to continue to support other ladies with their own journey.After years of deliberating on reconstruction, I decided to finally opt for a tattoo. I am proud of my journey and my scars and happy to share my beautiful piece of art, designed and created by a wonderful lady Becki Clegg of Tainted Canvas Tattoo Studio, Tong, Bradford. Ladies and Gentlemen there is life after breast cancer stand proud of who you are and stay amazing 💜🎗” ... See MoreSee Less
