Go backBreast cancer campaign - is backed by tens of thousands
Currently, tens of thousands of people visit the website thedayiwastold.co.uk, where women from the UK, France, Germany and the United States share their stories and experiences about breast cancer.
"I am overwhelmed by the great interest in this initiative. We can see that tens of thousands of people are visiting our website. At the same time, we can see that a lot of people also support the initiative on Facebook and other social media," says Lene Ploug Bülow, CEO at Amoena, the world's leading producer of breast prostheses and originator of the website thedayiwastold.co.uk.
The website aims to provide women who are diagnosed with breast cancer with a platform where they can find advice, support and guidance and share their experiences and reflections of living with the disease.
"We know from our work in Amoena that many women struggle with loneliness associated with this disease. We want to help eradicate this loneliness and the taboos surrounding the diagnosis. Therefore, we are just so happy that the interest and the support for this initiative
In connection with setting up the website, Amoena has allied with women from all around the globe who have chosen to lead the way by telling their own stories.
The ambassador for the UK website, Della Oguenleye, says:
"The day I was diagnosed with breast cancer, I did not know how to tell my friends and family about it. I could not bring myself to tell them the whole truth. I would have really appreciated having the opportunity to find support and inspiration from women who have been through the same."
She hopes that her story will help inspire women diagnosed with breast cancer and show them that they can get through the treatment and continue to live a full, active and happy life.
Lene Ploug Bülow from Amoena encourages all women and families to support the campaign.
"It is our hope that women affected by the disease will find support from the website thedayiwastold.co.uk. and use the hashtag #SupportingConfidence and #TheDayIWasTold to freely and openly talk about breast cancer."
