Losing the Locks for cancer research and support

By Sonya Karo

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.

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, so I'm helping Cancer Council Victoria by hosting a Girls’ Night In and Cutting My Hair Very Short for my birthday on 10th October. Given COVID it might be a virtual Night In, and I'll let the Boys' join in too! It’s the perfect opportunity to catch up the best way we can and celebrate my birthday 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.

Such important work big sis. I reckon a purple rinse after the hair cut should be a must as well. Good job 😉❤
