As you embark upon radiotherapy, pop the kettle on, make a nice cup of tea and take a look at our list of do’s and don’t’s for radiotherapy. We’ve written this article from our perspective as patients. We encourage you to talk to your medical team about your personal situation.
Future Dreams offers a wide range of support groups, classes and workshops tailored for people going through any stage of a breast cancer journey. Click here to have a look at our schedule – we’d love to welcome you.
Respire.org – a website for patients who have been referred for radiotherapy to the breast or chest wall following a breast cancer diagnosis. In particular, the aim of the resources is to help patients who have been diagnosed with cancer in their breast for whom it may be beneficial to learn how to hold their breath for a short time during radiotherapy.
Radiotherapy UK – this is a charity dedicated to improving radiotherapy treatment, the aim of which is to support radiotherapy research and development and support radiotherapy professionals by providing online tools to enhance collaboration. Their website provides so informative resources for those going through radiotherapy.
Future Dreams hold a range of support groups, classes, workshops and events to help you and your carers during your breast cancer diagnosis. These are held both online and in person at the London-based Future Dreams House. To see what’s on offer and to book your place, see here.

Sylvie and Danielle began Future Dreams with just £100 in 2008. They believed nobody should face breast cancer alone. Their legacy lives on in Future Dreams House. We couldn’t continue to fund support services for those touched by breast cancer, raise awareness of breast cancer and promote early diagnosis and advance research into secondary breast cancer without your help.
