MELBOURNE, Australia — The Australian Breast Care Centre (ABCC), spearheaded by renowned specialist breast surgeon Dr Nicole Yap, is championing the urgent need for better access to life-saving breast cancer tests for women under 50.

 

Breast cancer, affecting an alarming 1 in 7 women, stands as the second leading cause of cancer death among females in Australia. Yet, a staggering 23% of those diagnosed are under 50.

 

Despite these statistics, the Government does not provide subsidised breast screening for this age group.

 

"It's essential for the public and policymakers to understand that cancer detected in women under 50 tends to be the most aggressive," Dr Yap emphasized. "Early and accurate detection can mean the difference between life and death."

 

In a commendable initiative, the Australian Breast Care Centre has set an ambitious fundraising goal to provide free genetic testing to those most at risk in the under-50 age group. The Centre's commitment to the cause shone through last year when they generously provided 100 genetic tests and consultations, each valued at $595. However, more needs to be done, and the Centre is reaching out for public and private support.

 

"Breast cancer isn’t just a disease for older women. It's happening to our sisters, our daughters, and our friends right now," Dr Yap continued. "We're striving to break the barriers and make essential personalised testing accessible to those who need it the most."

 

Supporting the Australian Breast Care Centre's initiative is not merely a donation; it’s an investment in safeguarding the future of countless young women across the country. Together, we can pave the way for early detection and treatment, giving more women a fighting chance against this devastating disease.
