Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October 1, 2015 - October 30, 2015

Breast Cancer Care - Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and lead charity Breast Cancer Care helps to promote Breast Cancer Awareness Month throughout the year, with a plethora of events, fundraising events and media push throughout the month of October. One of the key days of Breast Cancer Awareness Month is Wear it Pink Day on October 23rd. Find out more about Wear it Pink Day here.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK and Breast Cancer Awareness month raises awareness about breast cancer, recognising potential cancerous lumps in the breast, raising money for breast cancer treatment and support for breast cancer sufferers.

Breast Cancer Care invites everyone to participate in Breast Cancer Awareness Month:

Join us this October to celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness Month and be part of a worldwide campaign.  Each year 55,000 people are diagnosed with breast cancer in the UK – that’s one person every 10 minutes.  We need your help to raise awareness of breast cancer and to make sure we can continue to be there for anyone facing breast cancer from day one. From having a Big Pink event to showing your support with a pin badge, there are loads of great ways for you to get involved and help raise awareness of breast cancer.  Whatever you do, you’ll be making a difference.

Breast Cancer Care has a strong history in helping to combat breast cancer:

Breast Cancer Care – Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Breast Cancer Care was founded by Betty Westgate on Christmas Eve, 1973, five years after her own diagnosis of breast cancer in 1968. A celebrated breast cancer campaigner, Betty lived for more than 30 years following her diagnosis and passed away in 2000. At the outset, the charity was called the Mastectomy Association; the name was later changed to Breast Care and Mastectomy Association of Great Britain in 1987 and again to Breast Cancer Care in 1994.  Betty’s passion for information, education and empowerment led her to setting up the Mastectomy Association, which she ran on a voluntary basis from her home in Croydon, South London. In 1981, the National Society for Cancer Relief (now Macmillan Cancer Relief) offered to fund the work of the Mastectomy Association so it could develop its full potential. In 1989 we opened our first office in Scotland. This was also the year of our first fashion show involving women with breast cancer as models, which continues annually to this day. Cherie Booth QC became a Patron of Breast Cancer Care in 1997, followed by Geri Halliwell in 2000. In 2001, Breast Cancer Care opened its first office in the North of England with a fourth regional office opened in Wales in 2003.
