A PLASTIC surgeon will be the guest speaker at the next meeting of East Lancashire Breast Care Support Group.

The meeting at the Beardwood Hospital, Blackburn, on Tuesday, February 4, will hear from breast reconstruction specialist Jeyarama Srinivasan, and breast cancer surgeon Julie Iddon.

Group chairman Ruth Loft said: “Ladies who have had a mastectomy after a breast cancer diagnosis, or are due to have a mastectomy may be considering reconstruction and, in my experience, benefit from having as much information as possible to come to a decision.”

Women who have had breast cancer are welcome at the monthly meetings which run from 7pm to 9pm but newcomers need to book. A £1 donation is requested.

Call Ruth on 01254 262324 or email ruth.loft@ btinternet.com.
