Today 50 women in Australia will hear the words “you have breast cancer.”
It’s a shocking figure – and a shocking message for any woman to hear. One in four Queensland women diagnosed with breast cancer will receive their treatment at Mater.
Every day, Mater's multi-disciplinary team supports these superwomen through the toughest challenge they will ever face.
We encourage you to be breast aware this Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Learn more about how you can support the superwomen with breast cancer this October.
By raising funds for Mater Chicks in Pink you will be providing practical support services to women with breast cancer.
Your fundraising efforts will also help fund life-saving research at Mater to better understand and treat breast cancer now and into the future.
If you have any breast concerns please contact your GP or 13 Health
Up to 50% of women diagnosed find their breast cancers themselves. This means self-examination and becoming familiar with your breasts is vital for you to recognise any changes – it’s the key to early detection.
