After Breast Cancer - Rural Regional Breast Reconstruction Awareness Event - Hunter NSW


Reclaim Your Curves was set up to educate and support women about their options for restoring their bodies after breast cancer. One of our focuses is, through education and peer support, to help address the very low rates of breast reconstruction especially in rural and regional Australia.

We are running a series of free Information and Awareness Events, the first being at Maitland Hospital on November 23 in conjunction with oncoplastic and plastic surgeons and breast care nurses from the Hunter / Central Coast region. The evening will also feature local patients who have had reconstruction, and who will be there to tell their stories. 

These events are to help Reclaim Your Curves connect with women who might not otherwise have peer support for this healing step and who might be unaware of the new technology or opportunities available for them. We offer several options for peer support and medically endorsed resources that your clientele may benefit from.
