Breast cancer has a phenomenal and often life-altering impact on the patient as well as their family and friends. UCF provides a range of services, free of charge, to make this time of extreme stress a little more bearable. Services include the breast cancer information and support helpline (0800 783 3339), a specialist bra and swimwear fitting service, counselling, support groups, Clarins Beauty for Life programmes as well as art therapy and creative writing.
