Your funds, together with those raised during the year, support our ongoing awareness and education programmes along with our collaborative research initiatives in each of the eight designated cancer centres in Ireland.
Earlier this year we developed a free ‘Breast Aware’ app (for iPhone and Android) that sends a monthly discreet reminder to your mobile phone to be breast aware, along with a step-by-step guide, via our simulated video, on how best to perform your own self-breast examination. Our aim is that every woman, young and old, will learn to understand what is normal for them. This means that if an abnormality arises it can be detected early and provide for a much more positive outcome.
On behalf of Breast Cancer Ireland, I would like to thank you, most sincerely, for helping us to make this happen.
