10 September Let’s Raise Awareness for Breast Cancer!
October marks the return of Breast Cancer Awareness month – an important opportunity to raise awareness of breast cancer and fundraise so that we can continue to fund vital research into the disease.
Breast Cancer Now’s research has never been more important – breast cancer remains the most common cancer in the UK.
While women over the age of 50 are at high risk, men too can be a victim of this life-changing disease. Governments and research centres all across the globe are tirelessly working and investing large amounts of money and hours into finding a cure. There is, however, a high chance of recovery if cancer cells are detected early. For this reason, it’s vital that women and men check their breasts regularly for any changes such as – lumps, swelling, unusual discharge from either of the nipples, inflammation, rashes or puckering/ dimpling of skin. Given its harsh reality and implications, many women and men are still not aware of its severity and miss out on getting regular check ups done.
To raise awareness and funds for our fight against breast cancer, this October, 10% of every Oxygen Facial treatment will be donated to The Pink Ribbon Foundation.
This will help to fund projects and provide financial support to UK charities that relieve the needs of people who are suffering from, have been affected by, or who work to advance the understanding of breast cancer and its early detection and treatment.
You can find out more about our Oxygen Facial treatment here or give us a call on 01202 024060 to book your treatment.
Breasts come in different shapes and sizes and they can change with age and vary at different times of the month. Knowing your breasts and what is normal for you is important as it will make it easier to spot any unusual changes.
The Pink Ribbon Foundation have created an invaluable guide to help you check your breasts for any signs of breast cancer. Download the guide.
And most importantly, spread awareness for the cause not only in October but throughout the year. At River Aesthetics, we believe every month is breast cancer awareness month.
