We are a new northern powerhouse of women who have been through and have recoverd from cancer. We have dropped calling ourselves a support group, because we are much more than that. A network that allows women to shape their own wellbeing through an holistic approach. A safe, non-judgemental and caring ethos which will help transform your life beyond CANCER! Please join us today - your journey starts here with Females:CAN.
Sheena Hussain (Collaborative Founder)
Having been through cancer myself I was desperate to set something up for women. I myself was never refered to a 'group'and missed out on engaging with people who were going through what i was at the time.
With a small grant from Macmillan we invited women from all backgrounds to come and shape the start of a new network.
There you have it, Females:CAN was created: we are here, we exist, so please join us by calling 07935177562
Females:CAN had the pleasure of James Colson from Silvertime Legal, Estate Planning Practitioner. It was very important to have the conversation about wils and lasting power of attorney (LPA).
Our ladies feel more equipped with knowledge to decide on both.
Thank you Silvertime Legal for visiting us!
Fantastic news, we are back and are being hosted at the Lidget Green Healthy Living Centre, Bradford. We are meeting once a month for 3 hours. See flyer for more details.
If yes, then Females:CAN a support network for all women and all cancers is for you. Let's face it cancer can feel like a bit of a minefield, knowing your rights and where you stand in your individual journeys can make all the difference to your wellbeing.
We believe in learning from peers who have been through the lived expereince with cancer. This is a vital tool which will empower you to realign, focus and of course heal.
Our services resume on 15th June 2022 at 9:30am. We look forward to welcoming you.

October marks Breast Cancer Awareness month. It was an honour celebrating with women from both Females:CAN and Cancer Care in Communties who have been through breast cancer and have come through the other end.
Our humble tea party was to show these women that they are celebrated in many ways. For being courageous women who remain strong and steadfast but also make time for themselves.
Thank you to Better Communities Bradford and Sovereign Health Care.

Yes, they do and there are not enough narratives from BAME communities. We need to know how people from the BAME communities are treated right from diagnosis to prognosis and beyond. They have a right to tell their story. This is merely the beginning not the end!
I want to have many interesting coverstaions with you all. Hope to speak to you soon. See advert for details on how to get in touch.
Massive thank you to BPH for lending me some 'sparebob'. I will now be in a position to develop my practice and do some much needed creative research into exploring cancer narratives.
