And this was the photo-shoot, organized by the medical research charity, Breast Cancer Campaign, to highlight the crucial message of #EarlyDetection surrounding breast cancer. It’s the week of Mother’s Day, making the message even more poignant … so I’m calling all mothers, daughters, granddaughters, grandmothers, aunts and sisters to enjoy your special day but make it also a day to check yourself.
Breast Cancer Campaign is launching this campaign following a survey undertaken by ICM Research that reveals that more than half of women in the UK fail to check their breasts at least every month and almost three quarters of women rarely or never discuss checking their breasts with friends or family. Let’s change that.
