“I’ve heard of all the other types so I’m just glad there was a month dedicated to people like me, who’ve not heard of breast cancer”, she said in an interview on Saturday. “Now I’ve become aware, I hope they can knuckle down and find a cure. I’m just sorry it took so long for the message to reach me.”
Various breast cancer charities including Cancer UK and Marie Curie announced that next October would be renamed “finding a cure for breast cancer month”.
Scientists, whose work had been put on hold until everyone was made aware of the illness, have now been given the go-ahead to begin searching for a cure.
