First Floor Meeting Space

About Keeping Abreast

Keeping Abreast offer ‘patient led’ support for women who are facing or who have faced mastectomy after the diagnosis of breast cancer or the discovery of a breast cancer gene, and who may be considering or undergoing breast reconstruction as a result.

Established 11 years ago in Norwich by two patients and their local Breast Reconstruction Specialist nurse, knowing that 1 in 8 women in the UK develop breast cancer in their lifetime, they recognised a need to support patients through this confusing and extremely difficult time. We offer support through our network of volunteers who all have their own story to tell, they provide emotional support, information and advice via local support groups, one-to-ones and over the telephone, giving women and their families the opportunity to meet or talk in relaxed and informal environments with others who have faced or are facing a similar path.
