Welcome to Flat Friends

Flat Friends supports women who have had mastectomy surgery and live without breast reconstruction, including those who may face such decisions now or in the future, due to either a breast cancer diagnosis or preventative surgery.

We currently have a closed Facebook group which provides a safe, private, respectful and mutually supportive place for women to come together and talk about practical and emotional matters related to living flat, including clothing, cancer treatment and relationships in everyday life.

Join us via our public page on Facebook, from which you can reach the closed group. We know you will find a warm welcome and plenty of advice to help you on your journey. Or you can email us via support@flatfriends.org.uk.
