We are delighted to be able to share with you our amazing new Keeping Abreast video; we hope that you will agree that it really does capture the essence of what we do.


Thank so much to our friends at Production Bureau for supporting this project.

Breast reconstruction is surgery to recreate the shape of a natural breast after mastectomy.

Keeping Abreast offers a network of dedicated support groups across the UK.

What Keeping Abreast do…

“A small group of thoughtful people could change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”

“Margaret Mead”


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.

Its been 2 weeks since the amazing team "Plastic Fantastics" from the @NNUH completed their skydive for Keeping Abreast. They did an incredible job of raising £2,459.00 (plus Gif Aid) which was way over their target. Thank you so much to team and everyone who supported them. https://t.co/hz1ApE1BDE KAbreast photo
