Caroline Sturman

Breast Friends Founder

In 2017, shortly after my 40th birthday, I was diagnosed with a 10cm tumour in my breast.  In early 2018, I had a mastectomy followed by radiotherapy and a 10 year course of Tamoxifen combined with a 5 year course of Zoladex.  In 2021 I had a DIEP Flap Reconstruction.
Being a mum with a young family, there have been many times throughout my journey that I would have appreciated the opportunity to connect with other women that completely understand how it feels to juggle life with a breast cancer diagnosis.  My hope is that Breast Friends will be just that for you.

In July 2020, in the middle of the COVID pandemic, I was diagnosed with multifocal, HER2+ Breast Cancer.  Soon after, I began a course of chemotherapy.  I had 3 doses of EC followed by 3 of Docetaxal with Herceptin.  In 2021, I had a DIEP Flap Reconstruction.
It would have been so beneficial at times during the challenging moments of my journey to be able to connect with other women and I hope that I can now help others facing similar challenges.  Please do get in touch.
