Breast Cancer Awareness Month

You may or not be aware that October is Breast Cancer awareness month. Although I already donate to Coeliac UK I also donate to Breast Cancer Care and Cancer Research whenever I can. It's becoming more likely that you know someone who has or has had breast cancer. In the UK alone 46,000 people are diagnosed with breast cancer every year and although more people are being diagnosed with breast cancer survival rates are on the up which can be attributed to improved treatment and earlier detection.  Tireless campaigning by breast cancer care means we are much more aware and savvy about checking ourselves for lumps and bumps and getting them seen by a doctor ASAP, earlier detection often means a better survival rate for many.
Donations and support from the public help to make it possible to fund new research , pay for support for breast cancer sufferers and their families and to run charities like Breast Cancer Care. So have a dig around in your purses for some lolly, or polish off the credit card and donate by clicking on the link below.

For anyone that hasn't had the pleasure of reading Lisa Lynch's blog Alright Tit go and have a gander, if Lisa's straight up humour, total matter-of-fact and honest way of writing plus her positive attitude in the wake of being diagnosed with breast cancer at 28 don't get you donating to this massive cause, nothing will.
