Cocktail night

By Shameka Langenberg

I’m hosting a cocktail night to help all women affected by cancer

Every year, 15,700 women are diagnosed cancer, and 6,000 of those will be breast or gynaecological cancers.

Thanks in part to generous people, 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 by hosting a cocktail night. 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 women affected by cancer.
