On the 15th September 2012 I will be climbing Ben Nevis, Scarfell Pike and Snowdon within 24 hours to raise money for the charity Breast Cancer Care. The challenge includes around 24 miles of hill walking, seperated by two long drives.
As I am sure most of you are aware Breast Cancer is the most common cancer in the UK with around 50,000 people being diagnosed with the disease each year, around 300 of them men.
Here are a few examples of how your money could help:
£5 pays for someone to learn about breast awareness at a community-based workshop.
£10 pays to provide a comprehensive, easy-to-understand information pack for someone newly diagnosed with breast cancer.
£24 pays for an expert team to talk with a caller in confidence about any questions or worries they may have about breast health or as a result of their breast cancer diagnosis or treatment.
£52 pays for a personal appointment to help women cope with the distress of hair loss from cancer treatment. As well as practical advice and information, clients have the chance to try scarves and hats and find something which suits them.
£132 pays to connect someone going through breast cancer with a trained volunteer who has had a similar experience to them.
£192 pays for a health worker to run breast health workshops in their community. The two-day course builds the skills and confidence to promote breast awareness, covering signs, symptoms and risks, and promoting the importance of early detection and breast screening.
