October is breast cancer awareness month, which is a worldwide annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research into its prevention, cause, diagnosis and treatment.
During breast cancer awareness month thousands of organisations will be involved in campaigns highlighting the importance of early detection, education and support services.
