National Breast Cancer Foundation – GO PINK

National Breast Cancer Foundation – GO PINK

June 2021

Since 1994, with the support of the community, the National Breast Cancer Foundation has invested in $183 million in Australia into 572 world-class research projects.

The five year survival rate in that time has increased from 76% to 91%.  The number of women being diagnosed in their lifetime has increased from 1 in 8 to 1 in 7.

Breast Cancer is still the most diagnosed cancer in Australia however and it’s incidence is increasing.  Almost 20,000 will be diagnosed this year – 55 Australians every day of 2021.  Eight Australians die from breast cancer each day.

By making a pledge to GO PINK and raising funds this June, you can take a stand against Breast Cancer and help the National Breast Cancer Foundation fund more world-class research that will help to detect tumours earlier, improve outcomes and save lives.
