Kerri's story

"If you don't make time, you may never have time." - Kerri's breastscreen story

Other commitments are often the reason that women put off their mammograms.

Kerri is a prime example of why women need to screen and urges women to have their mammograms, to give themselves the best chance of finding breast cancer early.
