Editor's Viewpoint

Action Cancer's breast screening service, which checks an estimated 10,000 women each year in Northern Ireland for early signs of the disease, is a wonderful initiative that includes the Big Bus travelling around the province to bring the service to those who want it.

Last night hundreds of women took part in the colourful annual Bra Walk to raise funds for the charity. At a time when the health service is creaking every additional service and funding stream is vital, and no more so than in the case of cancer where early detection is literally a lifesaver. Cancer charities play a pivotal role in funding services and research and deserve our support.
