October is Breast Awareness month:

  • One in seven women in the UK will develop breast cancer in their lifetime.
  • Most breast cancers (80%) occur in women over the age of 50.
  • Men can also get breast cancer, but this is rare. Most men who get breast cancer are over 60.
  • Over 55,000 new breast cancer cases are diagnosed yearly, with over 11,000 deaths.

 What you can do:

Check your breasts regularly and see your GP if you notice a change. The earlier breast cancer is diagnosed, the better the chance of successful treatment. This applies to both men and women; let's all be breast aware. Make sure your loved ones are regularly monitoring any changes to their bodies.

 What we are doing:

As some of you know, I have a little obsession with Crossfit, and our box has put together a couple of teams to compete at Battle Cancer in October. As a team of 4, we will be competing in 4 workouts throughout the day, which should significantly test our fitness and teamwork; our competitiveness will probably push us all over the edge.

As a team, our loved ones have been affected by breast cancer, our 5th challenge in the competition is to raise as much as we can for Breast Cancer Now.
