My first official blog post is one that is very close to my heart – Promoting Breast Cancer Awareness. October is Australia’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month & I feel it is a great opportunity for us to start having conversations on this topic & encourage other women to be checked.
I am truly passionate about promoting the awareness of Breast Cancer. I believe this along with giving support & helping raise funds for women & their families going through cancer is so important.
Did you know that in 2015 alone the projected number of women diagnosed with Breast Cancer in Australia is 15,600? The Cancer Council Australia believes that early detection followed by the appropriate treatment can significantly improve breast cancer survival.
“I really want to get this discussion going, you might just be able to help save the life of someone you love.”
Start talking to your family, your friends and even your work colleagues. This could be the spark they need to get checked.
If you want to know more about the Breast Cancer Screening process go to the Cancer Council Australia website – www.cancer.org.au & click on ‘about cancer’.
Below is a photo of our Team taking part in this years Annual ‘Walk for Women’s Cancers’. This is a 20km walk & is held by the Cancer Council to raise funds & show support to women & their families going through cancer.
Remember your health is so important & you need to look after yourself in every way!
