October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and here at Damart we’d like to help spread the message. Over the next four weeks, we’re promoting how to Touch, Look, Check yourself, to get everyone, men and women talking about it and doing it! We’ve also got a special collection of cosy, pink, thermal clothing to treat yourself. For every sale, we’ll donate £5 to Breast Cancer Now to support life-changing research. So don’t hang around, take a look at the video.
Over one third of women don’t check regularly.
That’s a staggering figure and the earlier breast cancer is diagnosed, the better the outcome. So why aren’t we checking? Over half, 53% forget. 19% don’t feel confident checking their breasts and 16% don’t know how to check.
We know you’ve just seen the video, but here’s a few more pointers below, from Breast Cancer Now.
Anyone can get breast cancer. So it’s important to get to know your normal by checking your breasts.
There’s no right or wrong way, just remember to do it regularly.
• Touch your breasts
• Look for changes
• Check anything new or unusual with your GP
Your breasts can change throughout your life for many reasons, from the menopause, pregnancy or breastfeeding to puberty. So if you check them regularly, you’ll be able to spot any new or unusual changes that should be checked out by your GP.
Our special Breast Cancer Awareness collection
To help raise the profile this month and encourage people to TLC we’ve hand picked a selection of our cosiest pieces for autumn. They’re pink to support the charity and they’re not just warm and toasty, everything but the underwear is thermal too. Even better, we donate £5 to Breast Cancer Now for every sale, which should also give you a warm, cosy glow. Visit our website to see more.
