HOW WE CAN HELP YOU

We recognise there is a great need for women, both newly diagnosed with breast cancer facing the possibility of mastectomy, and also women further down the line who are also considering reconstructive surgery, to be able to meet and talk to other women who have been through similar experiences.

HEAR FROM OTHERS

"The group really helped me to talk, to open up and deal with it, talking with other ladies who understand how things affect you following diagnosis and surgery.."

"So glad of the cushion and drain bags  you guys sent as they didn't have them at Nuffield"

"I am being supported by this fantastic organisation"

"I haven't regretted the choice I made: I'm sure it's been the right one for me, but without hearing and seeing the experiences of those at the meeting I may not have been brave enough to go through with it"

About Us

Keeping Abreast was established in September 2007 by patients Anna Beckingham and Beverley Birritteri and Breast Reconstruction nurse specialist Ruth Harcourt. They recognised a great need for women, both newly diagnosed with breast cancer and facing the possibility of mastectomy, and also women further down the line who are also considering reconstructive surgery, to be able to meet and talk to other women who have been through similar experiences. This allows women make an informed choice about whether or not to proceed with breast reconstruction.
