Pink Hope

Friends, family and followers of SJM – please read the info below from the Pink Hope web site, www.pinkhope.org.au



Please join Pink Hope in raising awareness, providing support and education to those women both affected, and at risk of Breast and Ovarian Cancer.


THE FACTS:

  • One in nine women in Australia will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime
  • More than half of all breast cancers in Australia are discovered by the woman herself or her own doctor
  • Early detection saves lives – the earlier a cancer is discovered, the greater the chances of successful treatmenT
  • Nine out of 10 breast changes are not due to cancer, but you should see your doctor to be sure
  • Breast cancer is also diagnosed in men (although the chances of this occurring are much lower than for women)

(info from www.breastcancer.org.au – Australia 2011)
