WOMEN IN TOUCH
Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer affecting women worldwide, with there being a 1 in 8 chance throughout a woman’s lifetime that she will be affected. Yet this cancer is 90% curable when caught early, and if caught early 95% of women live more than 5 years following diagnosis.
At Breast Friends we aim to remove the myths from dealing with this disease, and help manage the fear to help you fight back!
FACTS ABOUT BREAST CANCER
We arm you with the facts about breast cancer , what it is and possible causes.
If you haven’t been diagnosed we can give advice on things you can do to reduce the chances of developing breast cancer, as well as teaching you to examine yourself regularly – a vital part of early diagnosis and therefore increasing your survival rate if diagnosed.
We can offer support to you, and those close to you to understand and help you through the decisions you will need to make in order to get on the road to recovery.
