Every day in the UK 150 women will be told they have breast cancer. Fortunately survival from breast cancer has improved in many countries, with over one million women surviving the disease in 2012. As more women survive, attention has now focussed on reducing the impact of treatment-related side effects. This talk will describe the development of a support bra to aid delivery, and improve dignity, of radiotherapy for women with breast cancer.
