Mastectomy Bra Kits for Tameside Hospital

At the beginning of 2023, Boot Out Breast Cancer paid a visit to Tameside Hospital to deliver Mastectomy Bra Kits.

Our Mission

Boot Out Breast Cancer was set up in 2010 by Debbie Dowie who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009. Many women receive diagnosis each year and the team at Boot Out Breast Cancer want to make a difference.

Since our first event in November 2010 we have raised over £1,570,000! We have provided equipment for The Royal Bolton NHS Hospital, The Nightingale Centre NHS hospital in South Manchester, Thomas Linacre Breast Centre at Wrightington Wigan and Leigh NHS Hospital, Leighton NHS Hospital in Crewe, Chorley NHS Hospital, The Broadgreen NHS Hospital in Liverpool and the Paterson Institute next to The Christie. The equipment we have purchased is saving theatre time, anaesthetic and we believe giving that early diagnosis, which is key to ultimately saving lives.
