It’s time to catch up with your favourite ladies to change the lives of women affected by cancer.
Thousands of women across the state are expected to attend or host a Cancer Council ‘Girls’ Night In’ during the month of October to raise funds and awareness for breast and gynaecological cancers.
Cancer Council Queensland CEO Chris McMillan urges all women to make a date for Girls’ Night In, talk about health and show support for other women impacted by cancer.
“Hosting a Girls’ Night In is the perfect opportunity to get together with friends, while raising funds to support the one in six Queensland women who will be diagnosed with a breast or gynaecological cancer in their lifetime,” Ms McMillan said.
“Events can be as big or small as you would like – we’re expecting about 1200 pamper parties, clothes swaps, cooking nights or games nights this year in Queensland alone.”
Every event gives hope to around 4200 women diagnosed with a women’s cancer each year in Queensland. Sadly, around 830 women also die from the disease on an annual basis.
A Girls’ Night In costs a fraction of the price of going out and Ms McMillan encouraged those who attend Girls’ Nights In events to donate the money they saved to help those affected by cancer.
Breast and gynaecological cancer facts:
* Every day in Queensland, 12 women are diagnosed with a breast or gynaecological cancer and two die from the disease.
* Women’s cancers include cancers of the breast, cervix, ovaries, uterus, vagina and vulva.
* Thanks to advances in cancer research, early detection and prevention, 86 per cent of women are now surviving from a women’s cancer at least five years post diagnosis.
