On Monday, 23 October 2017 we would like to invite everyone to join us in ‘Wear Pink to Work day’.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer among Australian women. 48 women are diagnosed with breast cancer every day and in 2017, it is estimated that 17, 586 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer.

 

It is estimated that 847 women between the ages of 20-39 will be diagnosed with breast cancer in 2017.

 

The number of women diagnosed with breast cancer in Australia is increasing however Australia has one of the best breast cancer survival rates in the world.

 

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and on Monday, 23 October 2017 we would like to invite everyone to join us in ‘Wear Pink to Work day’

 

This is a day to show your support in raising breast awareness.  This year we are highlighting the importance of being ‘breast aware’ and knowing ‘what is normal for you’ by knowing what to look out for.

 

To show your support, everyone is encouraged to wear pink, or dress up your office, school or business all in pink, to highlight the importance of awareness and early detection.

 

It’s about having a conversation, which may in fact lead to someone finding an abnormality, and seeking follow up.
