In the beginning of this month, I mentioned that I’m collaborating with Breast Cancer Care to help promote their campaign, The Big Pink. This campaign was held on the 14th October and aimed to raise awareness about women and men with breast cancer while providing care, support and information for people affected. I’m sure, like myself, you know at least one person who has/had cancer and how it’s not easy, especially if the right support isn’t available. Here’s how you could still help out this month…
Every year, 62,000 people in the UK are told they have breast cancer. The diagnosis not only changes their lives forever, but also the lives of their family and friends. Breast Cancer Care understands the emotions, challenges and decisions people face every day. They know that everyone’s experience is different. That’s why they are there to offer support and information and campaign for better care.
Breast Cancer Care are the only specialist UK-wide charity providing support to people with breast cancer. Their free services include support over the phone with a nurse or someone who’s been there, welcoming online forums, reliable information and local group support. They’ll help people to live life with breast cancer and beyond. From the moment someone notices something isn’t right, through their treatment and beyond, Breast Cancer Care will be there.
691,000 people in the UK are currently living with a breast cancer diagnosis. Right now, Breast Cancer Care can’t reach everyone when they need them. With support, they can be here for more people, with care, support and information.
By supporting Breast Cancer Care, you can be confident that you’ll be helping people through one of the most difficult challenges they will ever face.
You can help by making a huge difference to people facing breast cancer, by donating any amount to Breast Cancer Care’s Just Giving page. The donations ensure that you will helping people through one of the most difficult challenges they will ever face.
This is how any amount added up can help those affected:
£5 could provide people with breast cancer the vital answers they need right now by funding five invaluable information resources.
£10 could help a younger woman with breast cancer feel less isolated by connecting with others under 45 with the same diagnosis.
£50 could help us maintain our supportive online community and allow people with breast cancer to feel less isolated.
£500 could help 20 people with breast cancer get the support they desperately need by calling the specialist nurses on our free helpline.

I hope you can join me this month, even if it’s simply wearing something pink or sharing this post.
