Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK, and 1 woman in 8 will be diagnosed in her lifetime. Breast cancer incidence rates in UK women have risen by 25% since 1990 – such a fast increase is not driven by genetics, but by environmental factors.
This is something every woman can benefit from. Book your ticket now as we think it will be very popular and there is limited space.
