Hi everyone,

HuffPost UK recently shared an article highlighting new research into the inaccessibility of breast cancer screenings, leaving disabled women a third less likely to attend screening programmes.

Have you encountered difficulties when attending a breast screening? If you're comfortable sharing your experiences, we'd love to hear them. Do let us know if you'd be willing to discuss this to a wider audience too; with Breast Cancer Awareness Month approaching next month, there may be further opportunities to increase awareness of this issue!
