Prevention Week 18 to 24 September 2017
Last year, supporters across the UK joined our first ever Prevention Week to help raise awareness of breast cancer prevention.
Get ready, Prevention Week returns from Monday 14 – Sunday 18 September 2017 and this year we’re planning even more ways for you to get involved and take action for prevention!
This year we need your support to make it bigger and louder! Check out the ways you can get involved:
Supporter tool kit
All you’ll need to show your support for breast cancer prevention. We'll have logos, posters and images for you to use to help spread our prevention message!
We’re busy getting this ready to launch soon. The tool kit will be online here shortly, in the meantime, sign up to our newsletter to be the first to hear Prevention Week news.
Wear it Orange for Prevention Week
Dress to impress! Wear something orange during Prevention Week.
Stand out from the crowd and get sponsored for wearing orange and help raise funds to prevent breast cancer!

Pamper for Prevention
Anyone fancy a pampering night of moisturiser, face creams and fabulousness – but without all the harmful chemicals?
You can help prevent breast cancer by hosting a Pamper for Prevention evening, pampering but without the risk, whilst at the same time helping to raise vital funds for Breast Cancer UK. Find out more.
Last year we featured inspiring guest blogs from a range of opinion formers, policy makers and health campaigners including Sir Time Smit KBE (Eden Project), Sharon Hodgson MP (member of All Party Group on Breast Cancer), Kerry McCarthy MP and Janey Lee Grace (Radio 2). Our blog can be found here.
This year we want to feature even more guest blogs, we're asking people now to take part, watch for updates here and on social media.
Do you have a story to tell? get in touch, we could feature you on our blog.
Science fact not fiction
There is increasing scientific evidence that the environment in which we live is also a key factor in breast cancer risk. Throughtout the week we will be highlighting some of the science research which shows the link between harmful chemcials and environmental concerns to breast cancer. You can check out our Science & Research pages here
We want to help people make that one change to their lifestyle that will help them to reduce their risk of developing breast cancer. We have produced a range of helpful guides full of tips and advice on how to go about making that change - these can be downloaded from our website. Look at our Reduce Your Risk pages here
Our prevention message applies to both men and women, we can all take action for prevention and we can all help change the focus from treating symptons to talking about PREVENTION!
