This support is provided by our sister group 'Nick of Time'.

We are always on the look-out for volunteers to join us to help run our Support Groups so that we can offer support to
more women considering, facing and undergoing breast reconstruction.

Ideally we are looking for some previous reconstruction patients who would be willing to talk to others about their
journeys, and also some individuals to help with the administrative side of things too!

If you are interested in finding out more, please contact us here.

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.
