October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. More people than ever are surviving, but we know that physical treatment is only half the story.
Breast cancer can be devastating to a woman’s emotional wellbeing and many are left feeling isolated from their friends, family and colleagues, coping with anxiety, depression and the constant fear that their cancer will return. They need expert care to recover. That’s why we need you to help us #ShareTheCare and donate this October.
A woman is more than just her body. Cancer is more than a tumour. Help more women reach our vital support services and donate today.
I was with a friend, complaining about agonising pain in my left breast. I was self-medicating with pain killers, but she recommended I go to the GP. I was referred to the hospital for further tests, but I’d ruled out breast cancer... The tests came back, and the lump was malignant. I was in shock.
