October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM) and we at Right at Home Australia would like to extend our love and care to those affected by this cancer.
The aim of BCAM is to shine a light on the devastating impact breast cancer has on thousands of Australians each day. Breast cancer remains the most diagnosed cancer in Australia, with eight people losing their lives to the disease every day.
Almost 20,000 Australians will be diagnosed with the disease this year alone, which equates to 55 Australians every day. And, nearly 3,000 Australians will lose their lives to breast cancer this year.
According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, the only way to stop deaths from breast cancer is by funding research to improve our understanding of how breast cancer originates, grows, and spreads so that we can stop it in its tracks.
Although the five-year survival rate has increased from 76% to 91% since 1994, the foundation aims to target the 9% who don’t live past this survival rate. The foundation’s mission is to end breast cancer deaths by 2030.
For more information about what Right at Home can do to help you and your loved ones affected by cancer, please don’t hesitate to contact us today on 1300 363 802.
In good health.
