Primary school teacher Claire Watson never thought that she would get cancer. If not for a chance BreastScreen WA post popping up on her Facebook newsfeed, by the time her cancer was caught, her journey could have been “incredibly different”.
Claire found a swollen area on her collar bone in October 2018. She went to see her GP several times and was told not to worry, as she didn’t have any breast changes or signs of breast cancer. It was thanks to a friend who shared information on free breast screenings available for over 40s on Facebook that Claire received a mammogram and was diagnosed with cancer.
