With National Breast Cancer Awareness Month coming to an end next week, now is the time to help save lives by supporting the 2020 Australian Women’s Health Diary.
The diary has become a much-loved addition to the lives of many thousands of women and last year raised $950,000. All proceeds support breast cancer trials research that is identifying new treatments and prevention strategies - research that could one day save your life or the life of someone you love.
Deaths from breast cancer have fallen 30% over the past 20 years which is largely due to new treatments like Herceptin, Exemestane, Letrozole and Tamoxifen identified through the Breast Cancer Trials research program. This diary is truly saving lives.
But we still have a long way to go. Every day in Australia, 53 people are diagnosed with breast cancer and they begin a journey which not only affects them but will impact their family and friends. Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australia and the number of people diagnosed is increasing. Continued research is needed to ensure every person gets the treatment they need to survive.
Lisa Wilkinson, The Project Co-Host and proud ambassador of the diary said “The researchers at Breast Cancer Trials are working tirelessly, nationally and globally, to give more people access to breast cancer clinical trials and to prove the new treatments needed to save every life, from every type of breast cancer.
The power is within all of us to help create a future free of breast cancer – please buy a diary today.”
For over 40 years, Breast Cancer Trials has been leading the way in saving the lives of women diagnosed with breast cancer in Australia and throughout the world. Their significant breakthroughs have been possible thanks to the Australian Women’s Health Diary and the support of the many Australians who buy the diary.
Priced at just $18.95, the 2020 Australian Women’s Health Diary is available nationally from newsagents, Woolworths, participating Post Offices and online at www.womenshealthdiary.com.au and www.magshop.com.au
