43 women are diagnosed with cancer everyday in Victoria. This year more than 15,700 women in Victoria will be diagnosed with cancer, and nearly 5,000 will die from the disease.
Fortunately the rate of women dying from cancer has dropped. Five-year survival rates for early stage breast cancer have increased to 91% from 73% twenty years ago.
Together we can unite and bring hope to the many women diagnosed with cancer everyday. By funding this cause, we are helping provide the funds needed to research new treatments.
In the past decade, people like you have helped Cancer Council fund over $7 million into research at Victorian-based laboratories looking at new treatments for gynaecological cancers.
Francine is a cancer survivor and she had hope thanks to everyone who contributed in raising funds for women's cancers.
"As a cancer patient, it’s so important to have hope. By hosting a Girls’ Night In you’re raising money for vital research into women’s cancers, which gives women like me hope that we can live longer and live healthy. I know I’m not alone and treatments have evolved a lot thanks to research." -Francine

We are hosting a Girls’ Night In to help all Victorian women affected by cancer
Every year, 15,700 Victorian women are diagnosed with cancer, and 6,000 of those will be breast or gynaecological cancers.
Thanks in part to generous Victorians, the good news is that the rate of women dying from cancer is declining. Throughout the last decade, the rate has been consistently decreasing by 1.5% per year. This is thanks to earlier detection of cancers through screening, reductions in tobacco use, and improvements in treatment.
I’m passionate about saving even more lives, so I'm helping Cancer Council Victoria by hosting a Girls’ Night In. It’s the perfect opportunity to catch up with the girls and celebrate our friendship while raising vital funds.
By supporting me, you’ll be funding ground-breaking cancer research, prevention programs and support services that offer a helping hand to all Victorian women affected by cancer.
