Breast Cancer Ireland’s mandate, in addition to providing funding to support pioneering research, is to provide education & awareness on the importance of breast health amongst women of all ages with a particular focus on younger women. Our outreach nurses assist in educating young women on the importance of breast health, making them more breast aware and knowing from a younger age, what is and isn’t normal. If an irregularity is detected, they can be examined early, and the outcome a lot more positive.

Breast Cancer Ireland believe that TY is an ideal time to educate young women about their breast health. The TY Schools Awareness Programme is tailored to promote good breast health…taking the fear out of a breast cancer diagnosis and educating young women about how to perform a self- breast examination.
