GCA® partners with the UK charity Keeping Abreast

Aiming to increase awareness on Breast Reconstruction, be a source of new supporters and fundraising.  

As part of our prominent and permanent focus on patient safety, our aim is to support women in regaining their confidence. GCA just signed a collaborative partnership with UK-based Charity Keeping Abreast. A non-governmental organization that works supporting and sharing valuable information for women seeking breast reconstruction.    

At GCA® we believe in women’s power to choose what’s best for them based on facts, information, safety, and quality. As we partner with Keeping Abreast, both organizations aim to provide support and inform women on their Breast Cancer journey.  Breast reconstruction is one of the most rewarding reconstructive procedures a patient can undergo, helping a woman to overcome the feelings of loss that she may suffer from having her breast(s) removed. 

Keeping Abreast recognized a great need for women, both newly diagnosed with breast cancer and facing the possibility of a mastectomy, to be able to meet and talk to other women who have been through similar experiences and to provide information and support. This allows for women to make an informed choice about whether to proceed with breast reconstruction.  


​What do they offer?

  • They have a national network of volunteers willing to offer support and advice.
  • The chance to see results of reconstructive surgery.
  • An informal and relaxed atmosphere to talk about all aspects of breast reconstruction.
  • The opportunity to meet other women who have faced or are facing similar issues.
  • Information, support, and practical help.
  • Answers to your questions based on real experiences from people who have recently dealt with similar issues.
  • Informative talks from professionals associated with breast reconstruction as well as related procedures and general well-being.

As a part of our efforts in being a confident choice for Life, GCA® has signed a collaboration agreement with Keeping Abreast that aims to help and empower women to make informed decisions based on trusted information and clinical studies, especially after finding out that:

More Than Half of Women Don’t Get Enough Information About Reconstruction

To help bridge the gap of misinformation on Breast Reconstruction, we will be honoring this Pink October by focusing on Breast Reconstruction Awareness during Breast Cancer Awareness month.   GCA® designed a T-shirt & Tote Bags to raise money towards Keeping Abreast and Breast Reconstruction. Many women who undergo breast reconstruction report feeling “whole” and highly recommend it to other women facing a similar decision.
