Home Instead turn pink to support Prevent Breast Cancer

Prevent Breast Cancer is the only UK charity, funding ground-breaking research solely aimed at preventing breast cancer for future generations.

Their mantra is Predict. Prevent. Protect.  As the only UK charity entirely dedicated to the prediction and prevention of breast cancer, they are committed to freeing the world from the disease altogether. Unlike many cancer charities, they are focused on preventing, rather than curing. 

Promoting early diagnosis, screening and lifestyle changes. 

We helped to raise awareness with our CAREGivers and office staff during the event #paintaltrinchampink campaign and raised a small amount to donate to their charity. 

Obviously with over 100 CAREGivers/Office, many of us know friends, colleagues or family members who are fighting their own battle with breast cancer.  Given this, we are keen to promote Prevent Breast Cancer’s breast screening for early diagnosis and support research into new treatments to stop breast cancer in its early stages.

This NSH link (below) gives more details of how we can help ourselves, especially for women over 70 who are particularly at risk of breast cancer because a woman's risk of getting breast cancer increases with age. 

Don't assume that because you're in your 70s or older that you're in the clear. 

Always report any unusual breast symptoms to your doctor.
