Sheffield Wednesday players, mascots, staff and fans showed their support to Breast Cancer Care at the Owls home fixture against Nottingham Forest last Saturday.
The organisation was the official charity partner for the game and the support will hopefully raise awareness around the national charity that works in the local community to deliver services locally and make a difference in Sheffield.
Breast Cancer Care volunteer Tony Herbert will be visiting Sheffield Wednesday’s Education Programme to talk and educate BTEC Sports Studies students around the subject of breast cancer and the chances of men developing the disease. Tony was diagnosed with breast cancer in January 2012 and spoke honestly and openly about the importance of being breast health aware.
The earlier breast cancer is diagnosed, the higher the chances of successful treatment. The charity are raising awareness across the UK of the signs and symptoms and the importance of going to your GP if you notice any changes.
