Did you know, a staggering 17 586 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in Australia every year, and that number continues to rise.*
On any given day, 48 women* will have their worlds turned upside down when they hear the words 'You have breast cancer', and eight women* will tragically lose their fight against the disease.
These women are our mothers, daughters, sisters and friends—and they need your help and you stepped up to the mark.
Thanks to your incredible fundraising efforts as part of the RACQ International Women’s Day Fun Run you have helped to make an immediate impact for these women.
The funds that have been raised will go towards providing practical support services such as counselling, yoga and art therapy and mastectomy bras for women who have lost one or both breasts. These support services will make life easier for women affected by breast cancer right now, when they need your support the most.
You have also helped to fund potentially life-saving research to better understand and treat breast cancer in the future.
Thank you for helping to make life easier for women with breast cancer today and saving more lives tomorrow.
