8 pretty pink ways to support the NBCF
The odds are someone you know has been affected by breast cancer. Why? Well it’s the most commonly diagnosed cancer among Australian women, with one in eight developing it in their lifetime. Scary, isn’t it?
Luckily we have the National Breast Cancer Foundation. It raises much-needed funds to assist with research and development in the search for a cure for breast cancer. Since its establishment in 1994, NBCF has funded over $16.2 million in secondary breast cancer research across 27 projects.
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month, and this year an overwhelming number of beauty brands are getting involved in the fight. Here are just a few that you can pick up to do your part.
