Elizabeth Hurley has also been campaigning to raise awareness following the death of her grandmother to the disease. She often shares posts about the importance of women checking for lumps in their breasts, and recently revealed that one particular post helped two of her friends discover their diagnosis before it was too late.

Elizabeth recalled how she shared a post on Instagram about self-checking, and that "two friends - both in their 40s who had not checked themselves - checked after seeing my Instagram and two of them found lumps and two of them went to the doctor, two of them were diagnosed with breast cancer and two have gone through treatment."

"They're fine because they found it very early," she added.

"They found a lump themselves, but they actually wouldn’t have self-checked had they not seen the Instagram that I did on behalf of our campaign. So, just hearing that alone makes you think, please ladies, start to check."

Good Morning America host Amy Robach has also been open about her diagnosis after she underwent a live mammogram on the show in 2013 which discovered a lump.

Amy underwent a double mastectomy and eight rounds of chemotherapy to save her life.
