What is Breast Cancer Awareness Month?
Every October, people all over the world show their support for people affected by breast cancer. Our work’s always important, but October is when we get to really shout about it.
For months, the coronavirus put many areas of breast cancer on pause. Now more than ever, we need people, communities and businesses across the UK to help us press play on breast cancer research and care.
From campaigning, volunteering and fundraising, to our life-changing care, support and world-class research - we’re going all out to raise money, raise awareness and make sure people affected by breast cancer know we’re here for them.
