31 WISHES

For Breast Cancer Awareness

This October, people across the world will be showing their support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It’s a cause that’s close to our hearts.

We’re honoured to share the stories of 31 people who have been affected by breast cancer. Our storytellers include patients and survivors, their spouses, children, parents and daughters, plus radiologists and oncologists. Collectively, these 31 stories convey our wish for the future of breast cancer awareness: That, working together, we can give every woman, everywhere a better fighting chance against breast cancer.

We invite you to visit our site every day this month as we release a new story and share another wish.

Mary & Erin’s wish

Mary and her daughter Erin share their family’s experience, with a wish that transparency and fast detection can take the sting away from the cancer conversation.

The videos are unscripted, told in the participant’s own words, and filmed using their own smartphones, computer screens or video conferencing.

RINA’S WISH

Rina lost her fight with breast cancer after five years. Now, her nephew wishes that there was a way to catch it earlier – to help other women win their own battles.

MAURA’S WISH

Maura received a shock diagnosis of breast cancer just six months after a clear scan. As a senior nurse, she says it’s all about keeping positive.

MARY BETH’S WISH

Mary Beth was lucky – during a routine mammogram, she found her breast cancer early. Her wish is for every woman to be so lucky.

CARY’S WISH

Cary hopes every breast cancer patient can have access to high-quality care – and the support to make informed choices. Hear her wish.

MIRANDA’S WISH

Londoner Miranda is living with secondary breast cancer today. Take a look at her wish for the battle against recurrence.

MARY & ERIN’S WISH

Mary and her daughter Erin share their family’s experience, with a wish that transparency and fast detection can take the sting away from the cancer conversation.

DR SRIVANI’S WISH
