This year we celebrate the 10th anniversary of our BRA (Breast Reconstruction Awareness) meetings. BRA meetings have helped hundreds of women newly diagnosed with breast cancer by giving them the opportunity to meet and talk to women who have been through the same experience. To St Andrews this means ten years of proudly watching our BRA initiative grow from strength to strength. To the women we have helped this means ten years of advice and support, empathy and reassurance.

To help celebrate we are holding a ‘10th Anniversary of BRA’ event at Anglia Ruskin University on Saturday 7th June from 10:00-16:00. There will be a light buffet lunch, some inspirational guest speakers, demonstrations and stalls. The more the merrier so if you (and any friends) would like to join in our celebrations please send your names and addresses to jayne.knight@meht.nhs.uk. Tickets are on a first come first served basis so please make sure you let us know if you want to come along.

Finally, thank you to all those who have helped with BRA in one way or another, we couldn’t have done it without you and are looking forward to many more years of BRA!

What our patients say

  • The BRA group is a very valuable group which helps both the emotional upheaval of the diagnosis and shows women this is a journey they do not have to travel alone.

    Sandra,

  • HOORAY for BRA! Everyone with Breast Cancer should have access to this wonderful service. The nursing staff are kind, dedicated and supportive, as I know from personal experience! My heartfelt thanks to you all.

    Mrs Smith,

  • After cancer robs you of many things including your breast, reconstruction is a way of feeling whole again. I can't thank the surgeons and everyone at BRA enough for their help and support.

    Emma Jones,

  • I was nervous and scared but the surgeons and nurses were very helpful and explained everything. They took their time with me and I finally feel complete and like a woman again I am so grateful to the wonderful team at BRA...

    Sally,
