Pink Sisters & Misters is a self-help support group, established in 2015 by our Founder Jackie Mackenzie, who felt there was no support following the end of her treatment for breast cancer. Pink Sisters & Misters was created to support people who have been diagnosed with all types of cancers. The face to face support is offered via 3 support groups which meet monthly to support people affected by Cancer living in Staffordshire and the surrounding areas. We currently hold 3 meetings each month in Birches Head, Kidsgrove and Leek will be expanding into other areas from 2023.
We also support families and friends of those affected by a cancer diagnosis who can attend the support group meetings or via their own Private Facebook Forum.
Our fundamental aim is, and has always been, to provide a safe space for people living with cancer to come together, share and express their feelings, ask questions and meet others in a similar situation or who have followed similar treatment paths. We are proud that our group provides support for people who need it during and following, what is for some, the most challenging times of their lives.
