About us

We offer support and care to cancer patients from the point of diagnosis, throughout their treatment and ongoing into the post treatment recovery period. We also provide opportunity for socialisation and education centred on well- being, to encourage friendship formation and peer support.

The ultimate aim is to enable a patient to recognize herself in a mirror and feel that she is ‘Me Again’.

Our mission

Our mission is to enhance the wellbeing and emotional
resilience of cancer patients by;

  • Fostering self-esteem,
  • Renewed confidence
  • Peer-led learning

All underpinned by provision of;

  • Personalised wig fitting services
  • Beauty treatments
  • Holistic therapies

The ultimate aim is to enable a patient to recognize herself in a mirror and feel that she is ‘Me Again’.


Our Aims

Our aim is to support women throughout their journey and have adopted a ‘whole journey’ approach to person centered support and aftercare. From diagnosis to post-operative recovery and the fostering of hope and resilience to create lasting peer support creating a meaningful and sustainable project legacy.

  • We want to create a safe and supportive environment where women can feel comfortable to relax.
  • Provide advice and support for cancer patients to manage the visual side effects of cancer
  • Provide a relaxing experience to counteract the psychological impact of their illness and allow a cancer patient some ‘Me’ time
  • Provide a variety of beauty and therapeutic therapies suitable for cancer patients by the employment of qualified specialists
  • Provide access to such treatments and gift boxes containing appropriate products free of charge to all cancer patients attending
  • Provide a wider variety of support and signposting services to cancer patients
  • Address the provision of support for particular age groups. We are aware particularly of a lack of such provision for the unfortunate influx of younger Breast Cancer patients diagnosed in our area and wish to particularly address this need appropriately
  • Provide a warm and welcoming environment to encourage interaction and discussion with the opportunity to forge friendships with other patients for support purposes
  • Host monthly coffee mornings at a nearby venue and provide a speaker for that event to encourage interaction and promote education and learning about healthy living and well being
  • Attract funding and sponsorship by organising high end charity events such as seasonal balls, ladies’ lunches, Christmas fairs and other events
  • Establish a referral pathway for patients by liaising closely with hospital trusts, and particularly specialist breast and oncology centres

Our Vision

Me Again wants to develop stronger relationships with local hospital trust, particularly breast and oncology centres and thereby establish a referral pathway; this will allow the project to work with beneficiaries most in need of our proposed, non-statutory services and enable patients to access these much needed services much easier and at the most appropriate time for maximum psychological, physical and emotional benefit. Therefor reducing any anxieties or stress felt by women diagnosed with cancer.
