Pinktober 2021

By Amanda Campbell

Pinktober 2021

Here we go again!

In 2008 I held my first Girls Night In.  Since then I have raised over $14,000 for the Cancer Council. However, I don’t do it alone! I need your help to raise money to fund vital support services, prevention, and research into breast and gynaecological cancers. As many of you would know, my mum has had breast cancer twice and like my mum, I carry the BRCA-2 gene.

A woman who tests positive for a BRCA mutation has an increased lifetime risk for breast and ovarian cancer and certain other cancers compared to women in the general population. With this gene mutation, my risk for cancer is 85%; it is, however, possible to have a BRCA mutation and never develop cancer.

Pinktober is not about me. It is about all those women who do not have access to early intervention or detection and are relying on a cure. 

I have now tried to retire from Pinktober multiple times but this past twelve months disappeared in the blink of an eye, and I did not come up with a better idea!

 I will once again be wearing pink every day in October as part of “Pinktober”, my annual fundraising effort for the Cancer Council. 

Thank you for your support!
