“You don’t have to suffer alone”: Breast cancer survivor sets up support group

Last October, 52-year-old Melanie Whatley from Cerne Abbas was diagnosed with breast cancer. Now Melanie is hoping to help others by setting up a local support group. Melanie said: “Physically I was not too bad, but I did feel quite fatigued going from Dorchester to Poole every day for my radiotherapy – though the radiotherapy department was fantastic and I couldn’t fault them.”
