I’m hosting a Girls’ Night In to help all Victorian women affected by cancer
Everybody knows someone who has had cancer. Some lost their battle and some survived, and some are fighting now, leaving scars no matter the outcome.
44 women in Victoria are diagnosed with cancer every day, 44 EVERY DAY! That is a lot of women.
Every year, 15,700 Victorian women have been diagnosed with cancer, and 6,000 of those will be breast or gynaecological cancers.
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.
