As the Breast Cancer Foundation says, breast cancer doesn’t just affect us in October – 8 women a day are diagnosed with breast cancer in Aotearoa New Zealand.

October is Breast cancer awareness month, and you can find useful information on the foundation’s website and their Facebook page, including links to various events around the country.

Other useful information comes from the Breast Cancer Aotearoa Coalition (BCAC) and the Ministry of Health.

If you have any concerns about your health, talk to your doctor or practice nurse.
