A bright pink BooBee Bus will be hitting the roads of Greater Manchester throughout the month of October, providing breast cancer awareness advice and promoting the importance of self-checking.
Visitors can speak to medical professionals as well as ‘BooBees’, a 100-strong team of inspiring BreastFest ambassadors who have been personally affected by the disease.
Starting its journey on 1st October, the bus will be stopping off at Albert Square in the city centre on the 2nd, before making its way across the city and beyond.
The BooBee Bus will be visiting workplaces and key landmarks all across Greater Manchester, equipping the women of the city with the knowledge they need to become more breast aware.
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 is the biggest cause of death in women aged 35 to 49.
