Where to go for a bit of extra TLC

October marks Breast Cancer Awareness Month (also known as Pink October). It provides a vital reminder of the signs and symptoms of breast cancer as the most common form of cancer, affecting around 1 in 7 women. The international campaign also highlights ways we can support both breast cancer charities and patients themselves – and if you or someone you love is looking to be pampered, take a look at these cancer safe spas across the UK.
