Breast Cancer & The Importance of Awareness
A Message from the Turvy Family Charity

Breast cancer, one of the most prevalent forms of cancer worldwide, affects countless lives every year. This disease, which primarily affects women but can also occur in men, does not discriminate based on age, race, or socioeconomic status. Early detection, timely treatment, and increased awareness are vital in the fight against breast cancer.

Breast cancer starts when cells in the breast grow uncontrollably, forming a tumour. If not detected and treated in its early stages, these malignant cells can invade surrounding tissues and spread to other body parts.
