About Buddies for Life

Buddies for Life delivers lifestyle-orientated content in an appealing, uplifting format to breast cancer Survivors. Essential medical, financial, nutritional, supportive and positive content is delivered in visually appealing and easy to digest articles.

The information provided is key to keeping breast cancer patients positive throughout their treatment and to assisting them with getting on with their life afterwards.

It is our aim to raise awareness of the disease, lessen the trauma of the diagnosis and to offer support to patients and their loved ones throughout the treatment whilst also promoting a decent quality of life both during and after the treatment phase.

Breast cancer Survivors are featured in each issue proving to the reader that there truly is life after breast cancer.

Readers include:

  • People living with breast cancer
  • Newly diagnosed patients
  • Families and friends of breast cancer patients
  • Care workers
  • Companies supplying the sector
  • Training institutions
  • Employers incl. Human Resource Dept.

Buddies for Life is published by Word for Word Media on behalf of the Breast Health Foundation. In keeping with the aims of the Breast Health Foundation each issue of Buddies for Life contains a section dedicated to the early detection of breast cancer.

The editorial content aims to help return the patient to a fully functional family environment within the limits of breast cancer; to keep up with global trends and sharing of articles with other international titles and cutting edge product development and to develop trust between advertisers, care workers and the patients.

All of the persons involved with Buddies for Life are either medical or healthcare professionals, and they have been affected by breast cancer themselves or have been inspired by a breast cancer Survivor. This helps Word for Word Media to deliver on the premise of writing straight from the minds of those affected by breast cancer to the hearts of those living with breast cancer.
