Thought for the day 15 October

Breast Cancer Awareness Month
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Most of us will know someone who has been diagnosed with breast cancer. Diagnosis and treatment have advanced considerably over the years, but being advised that you or someone close have/has breast cancer is still a shock, the treatment can have unpleasant side-effects and be exhausting, and sadly in some cases it does not stay in remission. As well as the excellent health care professionals there are a number of charities and support groups for those who are diagnosed with breast cancer and their families. It is a time to thank them for their work, to think of those living with breast cancer or the memory of having had it, and of the work being done to further refine understanding of the disease and its treatment

Lord, we pray for all who are living with breast cancer, or the memory of it, those who have lost loved ones to it, those who provide medical care, help and support, and all who are working to improve diagnosis and treatment
