Transgender people are often overlooked and under-represented as a group, especially when it comes to information and resources available relating to breast cancer. We wanted to help raise awareness about a lesser-known section of breast cancer, to help those who may be affected.
We wanted to create an application to help reduce the stigma associated with breast cancer for both men and women. Our aim is to provide a resource that will encourage people to share their feelings and stories about the disease with the ultimate aim of building communities of support.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women in the UK with one woman diagnosed every 10 minutes. Here at Bosom Buddies, we have created a warm and welcoming community to help support you through your journey. Please feel free to read our members' posts and sign up to add your own. Learn tips on how to help lower your risk of developing breast cancer and how to self-exam to spot any changes quickly.
Pink Is the New Kindness is an interactive front end website which aim is t provide resources for users on how they can best support themselves, their friends and family, and the wider community, who have been affected by Breast cancer to ultimately raise awareness. It contains a collection of external resources for each of these three parts (individual, friends/family, world) so the user can easily find information depending on their personal needs and circumstances. There are also real-life user stories shared from the community and a form that allows a user to submit and share their own personal experiences with Breast Cancer.
