Sophie Blake backs Breast Cancer Now’s Wear It Pink campaign

More than two in five women do not check their breasts regularly for potential signs of breast cancer, and one in 10 never do so – according to latest figures from leading research and support charity, Breast Cancer Now.

This year’s event comes as new research commissioned by Breast Cancer Now reveals that More than two in five (44%) women in the UK do not check their breasts regularly for possible signs and symptoms of breast cancer.  The survey also finds that 1 in ten (10%) UK women revealed they’ve never checked their breasts, and 13% check at least once a year or less.

This Breast Cancer Awareness month, Breast Cancer Now is calling for all women to ‘get to know their normal’ and help raise awareness of breast cancer and breast health by wearing pink on Friday 20 October 2023.

Aston spoke to TV presenter Sophie Blake and Addie Mitchell, clinical nurse speciallist at Breast Cancer Now.
