As you may have seen on the news and social media this month is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
This month alone more than 5000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. 1 in 8 women will fight breast cancer at some point in their life. Many more women are surviving and fighting the battle however still so much more research needs to be put in to help. Not only for research but to be able to provide vital services for those fighting the battle as well as their families. Providing emotional support and help with every aspect of life.
