Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Hearing the words, I'm sorry you have breast cancer in October 2017 brought my world crashing down! 

 

I'd found a lump in my left breast, it was painful, and I'd heard that pain was a good sign, it was likely to be a cyst, nothing as sinister as cancer. I saw my GP the following day, she referred me to our local hospital, and I was seen a week later. After a mammogram and ultrasound, the consultant gave me the news I really wasn't expecting; it was a tumour. So a biopsy was taken, and after a week's wait, I told that it was breast cancer. And that they were now waiting for further results to confirm the type of breast cancer so that a treatment plan could be put in place. 

 

I'm not telling you this to scare you but to let you know that there's always hope. I'm here today two years on after chemo, a mastectomy and immune targeted therapy.

 

Early discovery and taking action saved my life. Making checking your breasts as part of your daily/weekly routine is so important. In the UK, women aged 50 to 70 are invited for breast screening every three years so do attend. Survival rates have improved, the earlier it is diagnosed, the better the chance of successful treatment. 

 

  • Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK
  • around 55,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer each year
  • men can get breast cancer
  • it affects younger women although it's more common in women over 50 

 

Breast Cancer Now does an incredible job of educating and supporting women with breast cancer. This month is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Tangled Yarn will be supporting Breast Cancer Now during October and will be making a company donation to the charity.

 

If you'd like to make a donation to Breast Cancer Now you can do so through our Just Giving Page.
