My beautiful friend Lindsay is currently fighting breast cancer at the age of 39. As a result of the chemo she has lost her hair and her confidence to go out. As she is a barber she is going to shave my hair in solidarity with all those women that are going through a similar experience and at the same time raise money to try to get rid of this terrible disease.
Breast Cancer is the most common cancer in the UK. Over 55,000 women and 390 men a year are diagnosed with breast cancer. Yet around a third of these cases are preventable.
Breast Cancer UK is working to prevent breast cancer through education, scientific research, collaboration and policy change.
Breast Cancer UK provides practical advice and tips on how we can reduce our risk. They campaign for changes to national health policies to support prevention, and fund research to help improve our understanding of how to stop the disease.
