Friends of the Cancer Centre is calling on Tyrone women to be more breast aware this Breast Cancer Awareness Month with the launch of the charity’s new 7 Step Shower Check hanger.
The 7 Step Shower Check is a waterproof hanger that women can hang in their shower, on the door of their bathroom, or anywhere that will remind them to check their breasts once a month, every month.
The hanger features an easy to follow step-by-step guide on how to carry out a self-examination, encouraging women to become familiar with their breasts.
The card also outlines what breast changes, signs and symptoms women should look out for when carrying out their own exam .
It is hoped that the hangers will encourage women to be more breast aware.
Colleen Shaw, Chief Cxecutive of the charity, said: “Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women in Northern Ireland. More women than ever before are surviving cancer, but early detection is vital.”
