A bright pink bus will be hitting the roads of Greater Manchester throughout October, providing breast cancer awareness advice and promoting the importance of self-checking.
The double decker BooBee Bus is part of BreastFest, Prevent Breast Cancer’s innovative, exciting month-long campaign which aims to make Greater Manchester the most breast-aware region in the UK.
The BooBee Bus will be visiting workplaces and key landmarks all across Greater Manchester, giving women the information they need to become more breast aware.
Visitors can speak to medical professionals as well as a 100-strong team of BooBees – inspirational BreastFest ambassadors who have been personally affected by the disease.
The earlier breast cancer is detected, the better the chance of beating it – so we’re hoping to get as many women as possible to hop onto the BooBee Bus in October.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK, with 1 in 9 women and 1 in 1,000 men developing the disease in their lifetime and it’s the biggest cause of death in women aged 35 to 49.
As the only UK charity dedicated to the prediction and prevention of breast cancer, we’re passionate about creating a future free from breast cancer – we hope you can join us in support.
The bus starts its journey on 1st October and will be stopping off at Albert Square on the 2nd, before making its way across Greater Manchester.
