Every October, I make a point of spamming my profile on facebook, so everyone on my friends list will be made aware of breast cancer – how to spot the signs, and what to do for support. I do this in memory of my maternal grandmother, Lucy, who passed away from breast cancer in 1991, aged just 59.
Did you know that 1 in 8 women, and 1 in 1,000 men will be diagnosed with Breast Cancer at some point in their lives?
Ladies; know the signs, know the symptoms. Gentlemen, please read this too… Breast Cancer doesn’t just affect women. Early detection can save lives.
Be brave; check your breasts often. Know what’s normal for YOU. If you notice any changes, see your GP. Remember, many women have lumps, and 9 in every 10 are nothing to worry about. Be brave; be strong. Stand up and help fight the fight.
