It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Act on Cancer Together will be busy this month encouraging people in Brighton and Hove to examine their chest regularly for anything that isn't normal for them. To get a free monthly text reminder to check yourself text REMIND ME to 82228 or go to this sign up page and register for alerts. 

If breast cancer is found early at stage one 95% of people will go on to survive for 5 years, but if it is found later at stage four, this rate drops to 25%. This is why early detection is so important and why we are encouraging everyone to check their own bodies and go for breast screening when invited*. 

This month we need your help!  If you would like to help spread the important message about self examination then please get in touch at

Keep an eye on our social channels and share the message with your friends and family. Let's #actoncancertogether
