We are men and women of all ages who have been through the trauma of a diagnosis. We all have in common, our ups and downs, our good days and our bad days. There our similarity ends. Our experiences, treatments, attitudes, expectations and needs are all unique.


Our Group has just reached its first 10 year milestone. From a start with just 2 founding members, we have grown to a membership of 40. Of these, 31 managed to attend our Celebratory Coffee Morning on the 27th March. See our Photo Album for pictures of the event. 


On the 21st October, the Group's Autumn Coffee Morning took place and it has to be said that this was the most successful Coffee Morning we have ever had. Not only did we raise more funds than ever before (which would be a success in any event), but we had more visitors than ever before. It was a real joy to see so many happy faces that all the hard work put in by our Members to make it happen was worth while.

Our Group met on Friday 3rd February and used the occasion to support World Cancer Day.

A specially designed cake was hand made (and eaten) but the key benefit was increasing the awareness of World Cancer Day throughout Leighton Buzzard.

As a group we try to support each other through the sad times and share our good times. This is done with lots of coffee and biscuits and a very inclusive warm atmosphere. As you page through this web-site, you will see many photographs of people enjoying themselves at one of the events or activities put on to enhance the quality of life of our group members. Many of the photographs include friends and supporters of the group and we would like to point out that not everyone pictured has had a cancer diagnosis. Indeed the only criteria to being accepted as a member of the Group is to be over the age of eighteen and to have had a cancer diagnosis.


We are a local Group, totally independent of any other cancer charity or the NHS, we are non-political and non-religious. The mainstay of our Group is the Friday meeting and this has always been well supported. As you can see, we recently achieved a record attendance which demonstrates how successful the Group is in providing just what the members want. We are based in Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire, but we extend a warm welcome to anyone in the surrounding villages and our neighbouring towns of Dunstable, Luton, Milton Keynes, Bletchley and Aylesbury.

In fact it doesn't matter where you live, a warm welcome awaits you.

We fund raise - which can be quite a laugh (coffee mornings, collection cans and our annual street collection).


 We have a Chemo Warrior Quiz Team (a definite laugh)



We stuff, at times, with pub lunches.



 We listen to some good speakers at our meetings at the Salvation Army Hall on Friday mornings 10:30 am to 12:30 pm.

Drop in and make Friday a good day.  


  We have some amazing days out.
