Would it surprise you to know that breast cancer is the most common cancer among Australian women? Or that it was predicted that 38 women would be diagnosed with the disease every day in 2010? (That could be every woman in your workplace – it’s almost twice the entire bh office. Scary thought huh?).
With 1 in 9 women currently being diagnosed with the disease it’s pretty likely that we all know someone who’s been affected – which makes it all the more important to support the brands that work to raise awareness and funds for the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF).
