October is Australia’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month

There is no doubt that at some time in our lives, we will all be touched by the impact that cancer has on a family member, friend, or even your own life.   There are a number of very important initiatives that occur each year in support of cancer research and assistance for sufferers, and one of those is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. One of the most prominent initiatives during October is Pink Ribbon Day which raises funds to provide research into breast cancer and support for women who suffer from this disease.

If you would like to help support Pink Ribbon Day you will find some great ideas on their website for fundraising tips; you may have some great ideas of your own, or you might just want to follow the stories on social media – @cancercouncilaustralia #pinkribbon.   We can all help in some way to support women suffering from breast cancer, even if it is just by being there with a smile and a hug, but if you can assist with means of support for Pink Ribbon Day your efforts will have a greater reach throughout Australia.
