HSBC and First Direct held a breast cancer awareness workshop for staff in Hamilton, in partnership with the charity Breast Cancer Now.
Hamilton, Larkhall and Stonehouse MSP Christina Mckelvie also supported the event and said:“i’m delighted that the breast cancer awareness workshop for HSBC and First Direct staff in Hamilton proved so popular.
“It’s shocking that so many local women still don’t regularly check their breasts. I hope that everyone who attended the event now has the tools and information to create a regular breast checking habit and reduce their risk of breast cancer.”
This year, around 4600 women in Scotland will receive a diagnosis of breast cancer and almost 1000 will lose their lives. Checking your breasts regularly could save your life and the earlier breast cancer is found the greater the likelihood of a better outcome. Go to breastcancernow.org/ breastchecknow.
