But it’s been a tough year. For us as a charity but for you too.
That’s why this year we’re focusing on how we can help you build resilience. Empowering you to take control of your health to help you today as you deal with uncertainty and to help protect your future health too.
That’s why we’re excited to be launching our new breast checking video, Know your breasts. We want to encourage you to get to know your breasts, intimately.
The video helps you understand how to check your breasts and the signs to look out for. Early detection is an important line of defence we can all have control over.
Along with this video, we encourage you to get to know our other information on how you can reduce your risk.
In addition, we’re running our 25 Saves Lives campaign which is about inspiring you to get physically active. Why? Because this is one of the best ways you can reduce your risk of breast cancer. Studies show us that being physically active, not just exercising, can help reduce our risk by up to 20%.
There are lots of ways you can support the campaign:
Your support this October can help raise money and to make breast cancer research happen. We need to reduce the number of people experiencing the devastating impact this disease has on people’s lives.
Looking ahead as we move beyond October, we’re committed to growing our scientific research programme to ensure that more and more people now and in the future are prevented from developing the disease in the first place.
A donation today can make that happen.
Thank you for your continued support
