Breast cancer is the most common cancer affecting women, with an estimated 15,270 Australian women diagnosed in 2014. Improvements in early diagnosis and effective treatment have resulted in the survival rate rising from 78 to almost 90 per cent. More still needs to be done to reduce the incidence, improve survival rates and provide better experiences for patients during and after treatment. Please join us at this year's Pink Ribbon Blue Sky Breakfast and help raise money for research in women's cancer research.
