Think Pink This Breast Cancer Awareness Month
As most of you already know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Promoting awareness of this is extremely important to all women and is something that’s close to all of our hearts.
Incidence of breast cancer has risen by 33% in ten years and every day, in Ireland, 7 women are diagnosed with breast cancer. While survival rates are certainly improving, there’s still a lot more to be achieved.
It’s so very important that we check our breasts regularly and discuss any changes with your GP without delay. Also did you know men can get breast cancer too? 1% of breast cancer cases are male.
In support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, some of my favourite fashion, beauty & lifestyle brands are donating a percentage of their proceeds to various breast cancer charities to aid research and development.
So this month ‘Think Pink’ and make sure to support this worthy cause. We’ve put together some ways you can donate below. Let’s fight breast cancer together!
