Breast Cancer Awareness Month

breast_cancer_ribbonOctober is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October, Australia’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, provides an opportunity for us all to focus on breast cancer and its impact on those affected by the disease in our community.

Breast cancer remains the most common cancer among Australian women (excluding non-melanoma skin cancer). Survival rates continue to improve in Australia with 89 out of every 100 women diagnosed with invasive breast cancer now surviving five or more years beyond diagnosis.

Take the time this month to find out what you need to know about BREAST AWARENESS and share this important information with your family, friends and colleagues.

The Panaceum Group is supporting an awareness initiative this month, bringing you helpful information to increase your breast awareness.

Events this month:

During the week starting 12th October, we will be holding nurse and GP hosted breast awareness hours across University Medical Practice and Panaceum Medical, where you can come and talk about breast health and get some breast checking education.

On 13th October, come in for a pink morning tea in the Panaceum Medical foyer where all donations will go to Pink Ribbon Day – Cancer Council.

Come and join us as we go Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness!
