Founded as a closed Facebook group in 2014, Flat Friends UK became a registered charity two years later and is still the only one dedicated to supporting women facing or living with mastectomy without reconstruction, due to either a breast cancer diagnosis or preventative surgery. I'm a proud founder member and trustee.
The closed Facebook group currently has over 700 members and 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, and relationships in everyday life.
This is a selection of photographs I've taken at events we've attended and for our 2017 Calendar project, which was dedicated to celebrating life and friendship. Every single woman involved in the calendar is a Flat Friend.
