25th March 2021

We are delighted to announce that GatewayC’s ‘Breast Cancer Recurrence’ course is available.

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.
