This week’s RTÉ Guide is a special Pink Issue for Breast Cancer Ireland. Guest edited by best-selling author, Cathy Kelly it is packed full of practical advice, inspiration and hope to mark breast cancer awareness month. The issue has, over the past three years, raised over €30,000 to support research and awareness programmes nationally.

Breast cancer survivors including Emma Cassidy, Edel Cannon and Denise Ashe share their stories of diagnosis and treatment. Researchers and medics talk about new testing techniques and tailor-made treatments. The issue also contains an article on mental fortitude by psychologist Dr Olivia Hurley and a piece on the signs and symptoms of breast cancer by Kilkenny GP Dr Julie McMahon. There is also lots of Pink News on initiatives happening all over the country throughout the month.

Commenting on the issue, CEO of Breast Cancer Ireland, Aisling Hurley says “As we embark on Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we are once again delighted to work with the RTE Guide on their annual Pink Issue and so appreciative of both the funds raised and the increased awareness the issue generates”

The Guide will donate 20c of every copy sold to the charity.
