Breast Cancer Awareness Month takes place every October to promote the importance of breast awareness and highlight the issues facing people affected by breast cancer. Every year, around 55,000 women and 400 men are diagnosed with breast cancer in the UK. Currently more than half a million people in the UK are living with and beyond breast cancer.
Breast cancer and its treatment can have a huge impact on the way a woman feels about her body and how she sees herself. Everyone has to find their own way of facing these challenges; many women need support to discover what works for them.
We speak to people affected by breast cancer every day, so we're uniquely placed to source compelling case studies. We can supply stories to illustrate features about body image, sex and relationships and younger women with breast cancer among others.
