I’m hosting a Girls’ Night In to help all Victorian women affected by cancer
Every year, 15,700 Victorian women are diagnosed cancer, and 6,000 of those will be breast or gynaecological cancers.
Lung cancer is the fifth most common cancer in Australia and accounts for 9% of all cancers. It was estimated that there would be 3258 new cases of lung cancer diagnosed in Australia in 2020.
The risk of being diagnosed in Australia by the age 85 is 1 in 13 for men and 1 in 21 for women.
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 and for no one else to go through what I’ve been through. So I'm helping Cancer Council Victoria by hosting a Girls’ Night In, Bridal Shower addition, in loving memory of my beautiful mum.
It’s the perfect opportunity to catch up with the girls and celebrate not only my bridal shower but to celebrate life, 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.
