EVERYONE is being encouraged to register to host a Cancer Council Girls' Night In or Pink Ribbon Fundraiser this October and help beat women's cancers.
Every day in Australia, about 65 women are diagnosed with breast or a gynaecological cancer.
Sadly, every day around 12 Australian women will die from a women's cancer. The five year survival rate for breast cancer increased by 17 per cent from 1982 to 2012, and the five year survival rate for women with a gynaecological cancer increased by 7 percent in the same period. This increase in survivors of breast and gynaecological cancers is thanks to advancements in research and prevention that you help fund by supporting Cancer Council's Pink Ribbon campaign.
With public support, Cancer Council NSW will fund important research into breast and gynaecological cancers, prevention and advocacy programs, awareness and support services.
The community can show its support for women affected by breast and gynaecological cancers and their families by:
• Registering to host a Girls' Night In or Pink Ribbon Fundraiser. Girls' Night In is a great opportunity to get your favourite ladies together and raise funds for a great cause.
• Donating to Cancer Council's Pink Ribbon this October. Big or small, your donation will help beat breast and gynaecological cancers.
Getting involved is easy. Simply call 1300 65 65 85 or visit girlsnightin.com.au to register and get your free Girls' Night In host kit. Visit pinkribbon.com.au to register your Pink Ribbon Fundraiser.
