Pinktober 2023

By Amanda Campbell

Pinktober 2023

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.

I will once again be wearing pink every day in October as part of “Pinktober”, my annual fundraising effort for the Cancer Council but this year I have help!

My Uncle Ewan will be completing The Big Ride South to help spread the word with the fundraising efforts. He will be cycling from Maitland to Melbourne in the first week of October (wearing pink of course!) 

Please consider sponsoring the bike ride or donating what you can - any amount big or small makes a HUGE difference!
