The Breast Aware app, which is free to download, offers women advice on lifestyle choices that can increase or decrease the risk of breast cancer, as well as featuring videos on screening and on how best to check for breast cancer.

Katie launched the app with breast cancer survivors including Emma Hannigan who has survived cancer eight times and chronicled her fight in a book called 'Talk to the Headscarf'.
