Isle of Man Breastcare
Providing direct support to the island's breast cancer patients and their families. The original! with over 16 years experience.
Our funds go DIRECTLY to patients and their families to help them through difficult times. Not to be confused with another island breast cancer charity fundraising for a Breast Unit at Noble’s.
We are a Registered Charity set up by local women who have all experienced breast cancer themselves, providing emotional, practical and financial support to patients, their friends and families through trained counsellors. We have a positive working relationship with local healthcare providers and represent the concerns and interests of Breast Cancer patients.
IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO MAKE A DONATION please click here.
Regular informal meetings are held monthly at The Snaefell Surgery, Anagh Coar, Douglas or ‘One-to-one’ at home or on the telephone.

ELLIE & CHRIS DOING US A FAVOUR
Ellie Quayle and Chris Looney are to be married in August and instead of putting Wedding Favours on the guest tables at the reception, they will be putting lovely little place cards saying that a donation has been made on their behalf to Isle of man Breast Care. What a lovely idea. We wish Ellie and Chris a fabulous day and a long and happy life together.
RELAY FOR LIFE SURVIVORS LAP
Members of the Group will be taking part in the Survivors Lap of the ‘Relay for Life’ for Cancer Research UK, taking place on August 23/24 at the NSC. Anyone who has had a cancer experience is asked to come along and join in. Survivors are guests of honour and start the whole event off and close it 24hrs later.
MANX MINI MEET
This popular annual event on the 19th and 20th July saw all models of Minis and their proud owners from the Island and some from the UK taking part in a weekend of fun including a run around the beautiful Manx countryside on Saturday, skill tests at Jurby airfield including the ever popular ‘blindfold auto-test!’ a photo competition and a charity rally experience, where, for a donation of £15 you get to sit alongside an experienced Mini rally driver in a Classic Mini car. This is always well supported. The money raised will come to our charity. Thank you to John Tarrant and the organisers of the event.
