The Lewis and Harris Breast Cancer Support Group (LHBCSG) has received funding from NHS Western Isles to further enhance the supportive services it provides for local people affected by breast cancer.

NHS Western Isles Chief Executive Gordon Jamieson recently presented Trustees of the group with a cheque for £10,000 to support the invaluable work carried out by members. The LHBCSG has worked in partnership with NHS Western Isles over the years to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of breast cancer, to support health promotion initiatives and most recently to promote the national ‘Detect Cancer Early’ campaign.
