Local support

Hi I have just finished treatment this week & have been left feeling a little bewildered and anxious about the future.

I have a supportive group of friends but I miss the ad hoc support that you get from other people you meet during the course of treatment. Unfortunately there isn't a support group in Birmingham. Any suggestions?  

Thank you 


Hi Birmingham 

it does go very quiet after treatment finishes. A bit of time to relax and recuperate. 

I wish there was a jos meet in the midlands. Maybe if there are a few of us we could get something started. anyone interested..?..


I know I should be relaxing etc but intrusive thoughts keep popping in my head!

Everone around me are celebrating my end of treatment but I think the treatment gave me something to focus on, a distraction & there was lots of support around .

Perhaps a West Mids met up may be more viable if not many Brummies on here?


Hi Birmingham well lets see if anyone else is intersted in this.


Take care..


Hi Birmingham :-)

I know exactly what you mean. There is something really rather wonderful about all the people at the hospital and after a course of treatment they have become part of your life and part of your routine. I'm stunned to hear that there isn't a support group close to Birmingham! I've heard heaps of women saying they're from Coventry. Definitely start one. 

Be lucky


Hi Birmingham

I'm from Coventry and am interested - think its a great idea!



Hi Everyone

Just to let you know that we're about to launch a support group near Birmingham very soon. Our support group leader is based in Walsall and is looking to launch a West Mids group. She's just on the hunt for a venue where you can all meet. You just need to check our support group pages for when it launches. http://www.jostrust.org.uk/support/support-groups

Hi all

Any news on the West Midlands group? I have tried to register my interest on the website but it keeps crashing. I also sent an email but it has bounced back.

Thanks, Louise
