Fundraising for Breast Cancer Awareness Month 2023

Fundraising for Breast Cancer Awareness Month 2023

Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australia, and affects 1 in 7 women in their lifetime. It is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in women.

These are statistics I have become very familiar with, having completed a PhD in the field of breast cancer. It's a statistic that affects half of the world's population. One way we can all help is to raise funds for world class medical research.

Research can help:

  • Improve our methods and discover new ways to detect breast cancer early
  • Gain a better understanding of how the disease develops and progresses 
  • Provide more targeted treatment options to reduce side effects for patients
  • Improve the prognostic outcomes for patients overall

This year, I have chosen to fundraise for the National Breast Cancer Foundation throughout the month of October (also Breast Cancer Awareness Month). I have created two limited edition stickers that will only be sold throughout the month of October, with 50% of profits being donated to the charity.

Together, we can help improve that statistic!
