One of the most important reasons for producing this calendar was to encourage more people to be breast aware and the phrase above is the one we have adopted to highlight our message.
Cancer doesn’t have a higher or lower age limit, and the sooner you start checking yourself on a regular basis, the sooner you will learn what is normal for your body. And once you’ve started checking, keep on doing it!
Equally essential are mammograms – several of the Dare To Bare group didn’t have any obvious lumps or changes and only found out they had breast cancer through attending their routine mammogram appointments.
We’ve put together a document which you can view by clicking on the link below. It’s been checked and approved by the breast nurses at Kettering General Hospital and we do hope you will find it useful.
