Breast Cancer Awareness

She is available to talk to women’s groups in across County Leitrim and beyond. In the session she explains a little about Breast Cancer Ireland and the progress they are making in research and education.  Rachel shares her own personal experience of having BC and encourages all to be breast aware. She talks through the signs and symptoms of BC, and demonstrates a breast self-exam on a specialised mannequin. Rachel will also show you how to use the free app ‘breast aware’.  (There is more info about this in the link below).  Participants will have a chance to try out the mannequin where they can see and feel what they should be looking for when checking themselves.

Duration: One hour

Quantity of ladies per one hour session: max 30 – although more can be accommodated if the time is allowed.  Multiple sessions are not a problem.

Requirements: The programme is completely free but you will need to provide a suitable venue/room and presenting facilities. Rachel needs a projector or  a large screen that can take a usb key attachment.  Also a table for the mannequin and literature.
