Brighton woman among those baring all to beat cancer with nude calendar
4:00pm Wednesday 25th September 2013 in News
These beautiful ladies are baring all to beat cancer.
The fabulous five are stripping down to feature in a new ‘babes calendar’ to highlight the BRCA breast cancer gene – a faulty gene that increases the chance of breast cancer by up to 90%.
The calendar girls join the likes of Angelina Jolie, Sharon Osbourne and Michelle Heaton who have had preventative mastectomies after discovering they were carriers of BRCA.
Amanda Burroughes, 56, from Brighton, stripped down for the calendar shoot. She said: “I had always worried about breast cancer as cancers in general were very prevalent in my family.
“I tested positive for the BRCA 2 gene, which has an 85% lifetime risk of developing breast cancer. I hope these pictures may inspire and help those who find themselves in a similar situation.”
