BREAST CANCER AWARENESS DAY

We have just received and are pleased to be able to share this article with our readers and hope that you will join in TODAY! with support and during the International Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

“Help Those With Cancer Association/Tulips is raising awareness of breast cancer in the TRNC and have chosen Saturday 20th October 2012.

This month is ‘International Breast Cancer Awareness Month’ highlighting a disease which is still a long way from being eradicated but emphasising that early diagnosis increases the chances of survival enormously therefore support is needed ever more due to the number of people being diagnosed daily.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the TRNC, currently we have seen 150 new cases this year alone and this is rising each year, as it is throughout Europe and the USA.  Please do not think that this is a disease purely aimed at women, men are also diagnosed with breast cancer:
