In the UK, breast cancer is the most common form of cancer. During the month of October, almost 5,000 people will be diagnosed - around one diagnosis every 10 minutes. And this doesn't just affect women.
Male breast cancer can show similar symptoms as it does in women, which can include a lump. If you notice something unusual, whether male or female, then you must contact your Doctor. Survival rates and treatment for men with breast cancer are very similar to those for women but early detection increases treatment options and often reduces the risk of dying from breast cancer.
Our fight against this illness is ongoing. Whilst we, as a country, are making fantastic breakthroughs in research and improving survival rates, 11,500 people a year still die from the illness - a figure that is unacceptable.
At Romold, our support of Marie Cure will see profits from our pink spill pallet going directly to helping fund the outstanding work of Marie Curie nurses who provide care to people in their time of need. Their 2,160 nurses make it possible for people living with any terminal illness to die peacefully at home, surrounded by the people that mean the most to them. They can visit during the day or spend the night to give carers a break.
