A photo session is being held for sufferers of breast cancer on October 22, 12-6pm. Those attending can have their picture taken by Astrid Schulz.

The project, Kate's Journal, started in January 2010 when Kate Sims was diagnosed with breast cancer. Despite her devastation she asked photographer Astrid Schulz to take some pictures of her, depicting the way she looked before the operation.
The exhibition and its incorporated events aim to give other cancer patients and their next of kin an insight into the treatment.
