Give the gift of life this festive season

Breast Cancer Trials < 1 mins read

With Christmas fast approaching, you can give a gift that is truly special by buying the 26th edition of the Australian Women’s Health Diary.

The diary is the perfect Christmas gift, stocking filler or secret Santa and most importantly, you will be supporting life-saving breast cancer research.

That is because every diary sold funds research to identify new treatments and prevention strategies - research that could one day save your life or the life of someone you love.

Deaths from breast cancer have fallen 30% over the past 20 years which is largely due to new treatments like Herceptin, Exemestane, Letrozole and Tamoxifen identified through the Breast Cancer Trials research program.

This diary is truly saving lives.

But we still have a long way to go. This year breast cancer is estimated to be the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australian women. Every day 57 people are diagnosed, that’s 1 person every 25 minutes, and eight will lose their life to breast cancer.

Continued research is needed to ensure every person gets the treatment they need to survive.

For over 40 years, Breast Cancer Trials has been leading the way in saving the lives of women diagnosed with breast cancer in Australia and throughout the world. Their significant breakthroughs have been possible thanks to the Australian Women’s Health Diary and the support of the many Australians who buy the diary.

Together, let’s save lives this Christmas!

 

Priced at just $19.99, the 2024 Australian Women’s Health Diary is available nationally from newsagents, participating Post Offices, select Woolworths and online at www.womenshealthdiary.com.au.
