Many breast cancer patients struggle with aftermath of disease, finds charity
Debilitating side-effects and depression among most common issues raised by those calling helpline two years after diagnosis

Breast Cancer Care said the results of a survey of 1,228 people, who had been diagnosed two or more years previously and had called its helpline, illustrate the importance of the phone line and the need for the public to help keep it going. Guardian
