National coverage for pioneering breast cancer study at MFT
Good Morning Britain and ITV Granada Reports featured MFT’s BCAN-RAY (Breast Cancer Risk Assessment in Young Women) study, which is running from The Nightingale Centre at Wythenshawe Hospital.
The pioneering study launched earlier this year in memory of Girls Aloud singer, Sarah Harding and is one of the first research studies in the world to identify new ways to predict the risk of younger women getting breast cancer.
Members of the BCAN-RAY study team appeared in the film, including an interview with study lead Dr Sacha Howell, Senior Lecturer and Honorary Consultant in Medical Oncology.
Study participant, 33-year-old Caroline was interviewed at The Nightingale Centre and shares why she wanted to get involved in this important research – which turned out to be more meaningful to her, as huge Girls Aloud fan.

Girls Aloud bandmate, Nicola Roberts and GP, Dr Hilary also featured on Good Morning Britain to discuss aims of the study, and what the research would have meant to Sarah. Watch the full interview below.
