I’m hosting a Girls’ Night In to help all Victorian women affected by cancer

We all know someone who has had cancer. A friend, a relative, a neighbour. 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.

We are all passionate about saving even more lives, so we're 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 our fundraising night of fun and bowls, 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. Over the past three years we have raised over $2,500. Let's keep going!
