Sex and intimacy with a loved one shouldn’t end when you’re diagnosed with breast cancer. But sadly, for many women, it does.
Challenges with sex and intimacy can often go unspoken, leaving some women feeling guilty and alone.
That’s why Breast Cancer Now and Ann Summers are working together to help women to start the conversation about sex, intimacy and breast cancer, to highlight the scale of the issue and to raise awareness of the support Breast Cancer Now offer.
There are many challenges to improving sexual wellbeing and breast cancer. But the first step is starting the conversation and supporting women everywhere, no matter what type of breast cancer they have, to talk openly about the issues they’re experiencing if they choose.
Additionally, Ann Summers aims to raise at least £100,000 over a year, for Breast Cancer Now’s life-changing support and world-class research, through the sales of the My Viv product range and other fundraising activities.
Look out for the stickered product in Ann Summers stores, at parties, and online.
Members of the public can donate at tills in Ann Summers stores or leave a donation online through the dedicated Just Giving page.
Anyone looking for information and support about sex and intimacy after a diagnosis of breast cancer can call Breast Cancer Now’s free Helpline on 0808 800 6000 and speak to one of the charity’s nurses.
