A popular photographic exhibition called ‘Femininity Comes From Within’ is being showcased in Kings Lynn by the charity Keeping Abreast to highlight the work that is provided to women considering or undergoing breast reconstruction after a diagnosis of breast cancer or after the discovery of a breast cancer gene.
The portraits feature women are aged between 30 and 70, a number of whom are from the West Norfolk area, who have agreed to show the results of their surgery, were taken by local photographer Julia Holland.
She said: “The women have taken part in this project because they wanted to make a difference to others facing breast cancer. The hope is that the unique images show a strong message of femininity and positivity and will help them with any decisions they are facing”
Keeping Abreast volunteers, many of whom have had surgery, will be on hand to offer support and advice to anyone considering a reconstruction and information will be available from local hospitals.
