A new national NHS campaign to raise awareness of breast cancer in women aged 70 and over is now running across England from 3 February to 16 March 2014. The Be Clear on Cancer campaign tells women over 70 that if they see any change to their nipples, skin or shape of their breasts they should see their doctor straightaway.
In support of the campaign Voxafrica UK have released a video with Dona Croll urging Black African and Caribbean women to actively check themselves for signs of illness.
The Be Clear on Cancer brand was developed by the Department of Health and has been in use since January 2010 to promote awareness and early diagnosis of cancer locally, regionally and nationally.
The aim is to raise public awareness of symptoms of cancer and encourage people with symptoms to see their GP earlier.
