Breast Cancer Awareness Month

 This October thousands of women (and quite a few men) are coming together to raise the awareness of breast cancer.  This distressing disease affects over 50,000 women each year, which in return leads to an emotionally challenging time for families and friends and in some unfortunate circumstances unfair goodbyes.

Sites such as Breast Cancer Awareness, Breakthrough Breast Cancer and Asda’s Tickled Pink are full of helpful information from how to check for cancerous lumps to support for the people who get it.

How can support Breast Cancer Awareness Month?

There are lots of ways to help support breast cancer awareness from making a donation on the site (or by clicking on the Donate and Make a Difference Above) to purchasing something from Debenhams, Asda, LaSenza and many more companies who are getting involved.


Debenhams are selling a range of products that will donate breast cancer awareness week - From Playtex Women’s Bras to Exclusive Charity T-Shirts.


Asda launched their Tickled Pink campaign over 15 years ago and donate their proceedings to two breast cancer charities. You can purchase clothing, underwear and jewellery from Asda’s Tickled Pick collection.

Asda are also another company who push the boundaries in campaigning for breast cancer as they also generate exclusive deals with food & drink brands, stocked within their stores, to donate to breast cancer charities.

LaSenza and Paloma Faith

Popular singers Paloma Faith are LaSenze lingerie have collaborated for Breast Cancer Awareness month.  Paloma has designed an exclusive range of sleepwear and lingerie with 10% of each purchase going towards Breast Cancer Care.

So there you have it, there are lots of ways to make a small or large donation to this months breast cancer awareness campaign.
