Thursday 25th March 2021

We are delighted to announce that the new Breast Cancer Recurrence course is available on GatewayC.

There are an estimated 35,000 people living with secondary breast cancer in the UK. Breast cancers most commonly recur in the first 2-3 years after primary diagnosis, however, breast cancer may also recur many years afterwards.

  • Increase your confidence in decision-making about referring suspected recurrence

  • Jo Taylor, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007 and has founded the organisation ABCD, After Breast Cancer Diagnosis.
