October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

You see, my 52 this week isn't just an excuse to find a crazy metaphor and dress up in my ballet gear and go prancing around in a field.


Ok, maybe it is a little bit.


But it's also a tribute to Cancer Research UK's Breast Cancer Awareness Month. One in nine women will be diagnosed with breast cancer during their lifetime, and about 12,000 women die from breast cancer each year in the UK. (Of course, breast cancer affects men too - but I couldn't persuade E to put on a leotard for this shoot).


This month, donate to Cancer Research UK to help them with their fabulous work. No loose change? Try looking here.


Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the UK, but - thanks to work done by cancer charities like Cancer Research UK - early breast cancer can usually be cured and each generation of women has a better chance of surviving breast cancer than their mothers' generation. Donate here.
