Breast cancer is the most prevalent type of cancer in the world with 2.3 million women diagnosed and 685,000 deaths globally last year alone.[1]

Cancer is a tough subject to think about. But, it's crucial that you know what signs to look out for so you can catch the disease early on. Treating the cancer in its earliest stages will give you a better chance of survival[2]. and reduce the risk of needing a mastectomy or chemotherapy.

As part of Breast Cancer Awareness month this October, we’ve created an informative flyer that covers the following:

  • Common breast cancer symptoms.
  • How you can help prevent breast cancer.

Download and share our Breast Cancer Awareness Month flyer.
