Bosom Buddies UK
Women being affected - they reckon every household will be affected in the next 5 years! You never know, it could be someone you love affected.
1 in 8 women WILL get Breast Cancer - We go into Schools and teach the Yr10/11 girls Signs & Symptoms of Breast Cancer and How to Check themselves. Why then? Because it is the last time you can get 90% of the female population in one place to teach them anything. It's a bit like learning to ride a bike, once you've mastered it, you might not ride another for 10 years, but you know exactly what to do when you do! By empowering the girls to see no fear in the disease, it is hoped that it will reduce the need for major surgery and the stress it causes to, not only the patient, but all those around her. Our mission is to make Mastectomies & Chemo a rarity not the norm.
In the last academic year we saw 5,000 girls on a very small budget, we want to build on that, so that every girl gets a visit, imagine how much this could change the outlook of this disease, and indeed how many millions it could save the NHS in radical treatment.
Every girl should have the right to this valuable education, it may one day save her life!
Its also worth mentioning that over 300 MEN in the UK every year contract Breast Cancer, over half die because they don't know they can get it! We would love you to jump for us and help us 'Make a Difference' with 1 in 8 women being affected, they reckon every household will be affected in the next 5 years! You never know, it could be someone you love affected.
