We're working in partnership with The FA to help make the nation aware of the signs and symptoms of breast cancer, as early diagnosis can save lives.
Every 10 minutes someone is diagnosed with breast cancer. We know that an earlier diagnosis of breast cancer can mean simpler and more effective treatment. So we’re delighted our partnership with The FA, is helping us to reach more men and the women they love, with this potentially life-saving information. It’s vital that women, and men, of all ages get to know their body by looking at and feeling their breast/chest area regularly. Then if they find any unusual changes to go and see their GP.Samia al Qadhi, Chief Executive at Breast Cancer Care
Together we've created a 90-second video with an all-star cast of footballers and celebrities to make sure our vital breast health awareness messages reach more people than ever before. Wayne Rooney, Theo Walcott, Lianne Sanderson, Geri Halliwell, Frank Skinner and many others star in the video. How many can you spot?
It was great fun for me and the lads to film some tricks for the ‘Pass It On’ video. Breast cancer affects everyone, even men, so The FA has teamed up with Breast Cancer Care to encourage everyone to check their breasts regularly.Wayne Rooney
Be aware of the signs and symptoms of breast cancer
Everyone's breasts are different. It's important to be breast aware and to be aware of any changes that are different for you.
The Official Charity Partnership between Breast Cancer Care and The FA funded a brand new Breast Awareness Roadshow across England between September 2015 to April 2016. The Roadshow saw vital breast health information and support services reaching out to communities with lower levels of breast awareness.
