Last person finally made aware of breast cancer

1200A woman from Dorset who remained unaware of breast cancer up until this month has spoken of the moment she heard of the disease, checking her Facebook before bed on October 11th.

“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.
