Information and raising awareness

  • Breast Implants - Illness associated - Explant

    Amanda Savage Brown, PhD LCSW, is our most recent collaborator, and we are looking forward to the release of her book. The information she shares here about breast implant illness and facing explanting, is eye-opening. "The stories of women who explant to flat not only put a lump in my throat, they quite literally render me speechless. To understand why these stories impact me so profoundly, let me share a bit of personal context and professional perspective. As a mental health practitioner facing breast implant loss, I empathically and compassionately connected with the mental and emotional distress women may be feeling over  breast implant through explant journey. But breast implants to explant, laced with cancer-related fear and loss, would usher in an entirely new silhouette and a foreign sense of self."

  • Breast Health & Breast Cancer - we need to save more lives.

  • Inflammatory Breast Cancer – Reconstruction isn’t for everyone

    Although all women who are unlucky enough to be needing breast cancer surgery should be supported to get the right breast reconstruction for them, there are times when this isn’t advised, particularly when Inflammatory Breast Cancer (IBC) is the diagnosis.
  • Breast cancer - Out of adversity comes opportunity

    I’m a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend and nurse. Latterly, I am a business partner of Kate Maurice in Skarlette Limited. I didn’t think that was something to grow out of breast cancer; but out of adversity comes opportunity. Breasts can be lumpy bumpy areas for us to get to know, making it difficult for us to recognise something suspicious. Women need to do their self-checks both standing up and lying down. Beginning of the month, then it’s easy to remember, and this is women from their 20’s, not just older women.  That’s the opening chapter to my first experience with breast cancer. Four years ago now. Such a lot has happened since then. To be embarking on a new business with this quite unique lingerie for flat women with our Skarlette, is another massive chapter in my life that I had no idea would ever be something.
