Welcome To October!

Did you know that October is the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month?
This month is dedicated to raising awareness and funds for finding a cure.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer in Australian women - it took up 27% of the female cancer diagnoses in 2007. In 2007, 12 567 Australian women were diagnosed with breast cancer. Almost 3000 of them died.
It is expected that in 2015 over 15 000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer.
1 in 9 Australian women will be diagnosed with breast cancer before they turn 85.
Symptoms include:

  • Dimpled breasts
  • Lumps in the chest area
  • Redness and swelling
  • Large underarm lumps
If you have one or more of these symptoms, SEE YOUR DOCTOR IMMEDIATELY.
Most breast lumps are benign, or non-cancerous, but it will put your mind to rest. In the case that there IS something there, it will be taken care of before it starts to get life-threatening.
Do it for your family - your children, parents, siblings, partner. And do it for yourself.
If you are a male with any of the symptoms listed above, see your doctor. It is uncommon, but breast cancer also threatens men. So SEE YOUR DOCTOR TODAY.

This month, donate money to a good cause. It is as simple as buying a Pink Ribbon Product. Or donating online today. 
You can make a difference.
You can save lives.
