MEET THE STARS OF OUR CAMPAIGN

To mark Breast Cancer Awareness Month, discover these inspiring stories of surprising support and friendship

It’s October, which means the return of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual worldwide campaign. M&S has once again teamed up with our charity partner Breast Cancer Now and this year we are bringing you stories of women affected by the disease who found support in the most surprising places. There’s Vicky, Lisa and Sophie, a trio who bonded over Instagram, despite living in different parts of the UK. Farida and Julie were put in touch by a mutual friend following Farida’s diagnosis, and have since been inspired by their shared experience of cancer to start a comedy and theatre stage show. Laura is living with secondary breast cancer, supported by Sarah – originally her coach during vet school – and Sheli, a former colleague. And then there’s Suzanne, who found a surprising source of support not only in her neighbour, Sara, but also her ex-husband’s wife, Paula.
