Each of our board members have been diagnosed with breast cancer, and when we each had to make a decision about our mastectomies, we searched for information on “going flat” (flat closure). We quickly discovered that finding the information was difficult. So each of us, in our own ways, began advocating and educating for flat awareness. Because we're passionate about spreading the message that flat is a valid, beautiful and healthy surgical option.
Because the flat community needed more.
In April 2018, Flat Closure NOW was born. We had all discovered and supported each other's advocacy works for some time and knew we had something really special within our friendships. What makes this group so unique is that each of us have unique experiences, skills and perspectives to bring to the table.
This is why we include links to our individual websites. In supporting our flat community, we also support each other's work. We not only work as this grassroots organization, but also individually, for the flat cause.
Flat Closure NOW is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and donations are tax deductible.
