How has breast cancer affected your life?
October is international breast cancer awareness month. Share your story to help more Kiwis understand this deadly disease.
Around 650 women still die from the disease every year, although most will survive five years or longer if the cancer is detected early enough.
It's not just women it affects. Men can also get breast cancer, although it is not as common.
We want to hear how breast cancer has affected your life.
Have you survived breast cancer or are you currently undergoing treatment? Maybe you've supported family or friends through their diagnosis.
