Thank you for your kind and supportive message to other people on the Forum. I'm sure your thread will bring help and reassurance to women in a similar position to you and your sister.
I also wanted to let you know that we're currently recruiting for new Someone Like Me volunteers, and I wondered if this may be a role that's of interest to you. Someone Like Me volunteers give support to others by telephone (and sometimes email) who are going through a similar experience to their own. It may be for practical tips around what to expect from reconstruction, or emotional support around their diagnosis. In particular, we're keen to recruit more volunteers who have had a genetic diagnosis and preventative treatment, as you have. We're currently recruiting in Central and South England and Wales. If you're interested, you can find out more here:
