Let’s talk about

Support

What are our meetings about?

Although the plastic surgeon will have explained all the details of the surgery it can often be very difficult to absorb the information and formulate the questions you may want to ask. Many women have said they feel more at ease when they are able to ask questions and express their concerns to other women who are or have been in a similar situation – this is where KA can help!

KA aims to have a guest speaker at each support group meeting, covering topics related to all aspects of breast reconstruction as well as general wellbeing. Following this there is an opportunity to view the results of other women’s surgery and that of those who are in, or have been in, a similar situation.

Who attends?

Meetings are open to all women who are considering either immediate or delayed breast reconstruction, but also, and very importantly, other family members, significant others and friends who wish to offer support. There is an open invitation and everyone is welcome.

We also welcome women considering surgery who face an increased risk of breast cancer due to family history or an identified gene mutation, with specific support through our sister group Nick of Time

Meetings are also attended by women who have already had surgery, and who are at various stages of their reconstruction – including nipple reconstruction and other related procedures
