No Bra Day for Breast Cancer Awareness

Nine of Caremark (East Riding)'s staff posed for photos to show their support for ‘No Bra Day’. No Bra Day is meant to promote breast cancer awareness and to help raise money for research.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and National No Bra Day should serve as a reminder for all women to check their breast and to make sure they go for screening.

Facts and Statistics 2015

1. Gender - being a woman is the biggest risk factor for developing breast cancer.
2. Getting older - the older the person the higher the risk, more than 80% of breast cancers occur in women over the age of 50. Most men who get breast cancer are over 60.
3. Significant family history - this isn't common, around 5% of people diagnosed with breast cancer have inherited a faulty BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene.
