Norwich B Reshaped

NORWICH SUPPORT GROUP

We welcome anyone considering reconstruction and still looking at options, those who are still going through surgery, and those whose reconstruction is now complete and would like to help others. Partners, family members and friends are also welcome to come along with you if you would like some company. Normally, each meeting welcomes a guest speaker followed by a “model” session where women have the opportunity to see surgery results and talk about experiences on a one-to-one basis.

HEREDITARY BREAST CANCER

As well as supporting women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer and looking to have an immediate or delayed reconstruction, Keeping Abreast also supports those women looking to have elective reconstruction surgery due to the discovery of a breast cancer gene.

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

WANT TO HELP?

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.

Alternatively you can watch a range of informational videos on our YouTube channel.

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.
