How you can help out during Breast Cancer awareness week 18-24th Sept

Join us this Prevention Week as we shine a spotlight on breast cancer prevention.

1 in 8 women in the UK will develop breast cancer at some point in their lifetime. 1 in 5 of them will be under the age of 50.

We can do more to prevent breast cancer.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK. Each year over 55,000 people are diagnosed.

Sadly not all breast cancers are preventable. Yet around 1 in 4 breast cancer cases are thought to be preventable.

Reducing breast cancer cases by 25% would mean 13,750 less people would be diagnosed with breast cancer every year.

Just think! 13,750 people, their partners, family and friends free of breast cancer.
