Since Helen Addis launched our lifesaving Change and Check campaign in April of this year, more than 15,000 stickers have appeared in changing facilities throughout the UK and at least nine women have received early diagnoses of breast cancer thanks to the campaign. Now we're taking that message on the road as Lorraine's Boob Bus travels across the country throughout October hoping to spread even more awareness and get people regularly checking their boobs.

Speaking to Helen Addis, Sally admitted, "I saw that sticker and I thought - this isn't right, I need to go and get this checked out."

Following a biopsy, Sally received a diagnosis of invasive lobular breast cancer: "It's not great but it's fightable. We can battle it, we can beat it."
