A few weeks ago, we went with Make 2nds Count the Charity to Future Dreams House. This is the only specialised Breast Cancer Support Centre in the UK.
Make 2nds Count Tea & Chat launched at Future Dreams House
Future Dreams funds research into breast cancer, provides practical and emotional support for those touched by the disease and saves lives by early detection through their campaign 'Change and Check' which some of you may learnt of from the 'Lorraine Show'.
It was started in 2008 by mother and daughter Sylvie Henry and Danielle Leslie. By a cruel twist of fate, they were both diagnosed with breast cancer, Danielle just 35 and a mother of 3 young children. Tragically both women lost their lives to the disease within a year in 2009.
Since 2008 they have continued their legacy to raise over £6.5m for support, awareness, and research.

'As a charity, we are inspired by the vision of our founders and the precious insight and advice from the people and families we have met on the journey. Future Dreams wants to make a breast cancer experience less bleak and lonely using these core values.'

When we spoke to Sam Moffat, best friend of Danielle who is the protector of the legacy and Future Dreams House, she shared that Future Dreams House is the home to all those going through Breast Cancer.

It was lovely for our kathryn to meet Sara from Ticking off Breast Cancer who has now become involved with the team at Future Dreams. They laughed about the live they carried out during lockdown and how great it was to finally meet.
Kathryn shared, "The Future Dreams house is a home. You know that warm feeling when you walk in to a home were your loved it had that magic. The air was filled with a beautiful fragrance, smiles and hugs were plentiful and the rooms were filled with chatter although a sense of calm. I felt vey fortunate to have been given such a warm welcome and see first hand the positive impact the support services were having on ladies."
