BOOBS 2014 © ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.
‘4 years ago we lost a an inspirational and amazing friend to this disease and her wishes were that we learn to check our Boobs – BooB’s breast cancer awareness is her legacy and us spreading the word as far as we can. ‘
Our primary aim is raising awareness and educating ladies (and men) how to check their breasts. Our ethos is that if symptoms can be caught early enough it could save a life.
Monies raised are donated to local charities Stars Breast Cancer Unit and Weldmar Hospice.
We help local people who have had a diagnosis with the cost of treatment, support, mastectomy bras, wigs If the worst possible news is received we are here to help families in some way to create an everlasting memory
BooBs can put ladies with a diagnosis in touch with others locally who have fought or are fighting the battle to provide emotional support.
Although BooBs is primarily aimed at Breast cancer awareness it is not exclusive to this cancer and every opportunity will be taken to enhance the general public’s knowledge of early signs of other cancers.
Our main fundraising event is an evening in October which provides information and advice on symptoms of breast cancer and demonstrations to check your breasts. The evening gives host to some amazing ladies who have fought or are fighting breast cancer some of whom tell their courageous stories.
We hold a weekly fitness club and do regular entertainment evenings. All events provide information of cancer prevention and care.
We have a Facebook page which shares tips and news and enables us to reach a wider audience.
BooBs has been such a successful evening that we have now reached the status of becoming a registered charity and the application is currently being processed under the name of ‘Shaftesbury Breast Cancer Awareness’
We sell branded merchandise to raise notoriety and awareness.
