Prevention Week 17 to 23 September 2018
Save the date: Prevention week returns Monday 17 September 2018.
Get ready, as Prevention Week returns from Monday 17 to Sunday 23 September 2018 and this year we’re planning even more ways for you to get involved and take action for prevention.
We can do more to prevent breast cancer. It will effect 1 in 8 women in the UK at some point in the lives. 1 in 5 will be under the age of 50.
Not all breast cancers are preventable but 1 in 4 breast cancer cases are.
This means there is much more we can do, more lifestyle changes we can make, more research we can fund and more polices we can encourage that will help prevent the preventable.
Prevention Week is all about shining the light on breast cancer prevention and inspiring people to protect their health, by understanding the risk factors and making simple changes to their lifestyle to reduce their risk.
It’s about dropping some of things that are bad for you and switching to more of the things that are good for you. What you eat, drink and how you treat your body can powerfully reduce your risk and how you feel about your life.
Breast Cancer UK is the only UK charity focused on the prevention of breast cancer by campaigning to reduce risk.
In the coming weeks we will be uploading lots of sharable content for you to share with your friends and family, so bookmark this page.
In the meantime, you can stay in the know by signing up to our newsletter to stay up to date with what's happening in Prevention Week.
Together we can help prevent the preventable.
