October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and as part of our health and well-being plan for the year, our female employees were provided with advice on the signs and symptoms of checking their breasts regularly to help detect Cancer.
Our ladies were also treated to some lovely gift boxes including a health shot, soap, lip balm and some very fetching socks to mark the occasion.
Breast cancer starts in the breast tissue. Around 55,000 women and 370 men are diagnosed with Breast Cancer each year and one in seven women in the UK will develop breast cancer in their lifetime.
Although the disease is more prominent in people over the age of 50, (approx. 80%) it can affect all ages of both men and women. Early diagnosis is essential for successful treatment, and this is why Kiverco chose to promote the importance of being breast aware.
