Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM) takes place every October. The aim of the BCAM is to shine a light on the devastating impact breast cancer has on thousands of Australians each day.
From the 29th-31st of October, Suncorp Stadium will help shine this light by turning our lights on Pink from 4-9pm each night.
DID you know?
Almost 20,000 Australians will be diagnosed with Breast Cancer this year alone.
That equates to 55 Australians every day.
And nearly 3000 Australians will lose their lives to breast cancer this year. That’s someone’s mother, sister, friend or family member whose life has been tragically cut short because of the disease.
Although the five-year survival rate has increased from 76% to 91% since 1994 thanks to research, there is still progress to be made to stop deaths from breast cancer. By targeting the remaining 9% who don’t live past this survival rate, NBCF’s goal is to reach zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030.
How can you help?
We rely entirely on generous donations from the Australian community to fund leading breast cancer researchers. Through these funds, we are able to invest in world-class research in prevention, detection, new and improved treatment and quality of life to ultimately stop deaths from breast cancer.
