THERE’S A MOMENT IN EVERY WOMAN’S BREAST CANCER STORY

When she is faced with the possible loss of her dreams, her plans, or even her life. It’s when her doctor says “you have breast cancer”, “your breast cancer has spread” or “your treatment’s not working any more”.

In that woman’s darkest and most frightening moment, you can be there – to make sure her doctor has some good news to follow the bad.

You can do it by making a donation each month to fund Breast Cancer Trials research. Clinical trials are the crucial step that turns laboratory breakthroughs into new treatments and cures for every woman diagnosed or at risk of breast cancer.

With a regular monthly gift to Breast Cancer Trials, you can make sure women in Australia can access the world’s best and latest breast cancer treatments.

Month by month, clinical trial by clinical trial, woman by woman, you can end the devastating toll that breast cancer still takes.

You can be there to save her plans for the future, her dreams and her life.

MEET KRISTY, A MOTHER OF TWO LIVING WITH INCURABLE BREAST CANCER

Kristy was 29 years old and 29 weeks pregnant with her second child when she was diagnosed with breast cancer.

Kristy’s surgeon wanted her to start chemotherapy straight away. But Kristy was thinking of baby Isobel in her womb and wanted to wait until after her birth.

She had surgery to remove the two cancers in her breast and then she was induced at 37 weeks.

After the birth Kristy had planned some time at home to bond with her tiny newborn, Isobel and have cuddles with her two-year-old daughter, Anna.

Instead, she was in hospital grappling with the news her breast cancer had spread to her liver, was incurable – and could rob her of the chance to see her little girls grow up.

“My biggest fear was the amount of time I might have left with my children. That I wasn’t going to get to do the things I’d always planned to do and see.”

BREAST CANCER TURNS LIVES UPSIDE DOWN AND DESTROYS HOPES, DREAMS AND PLANS FOR THE FUTURE

Kristy’s breast cancer has now spread to her spine. She’s left her job as a primary school teacher, so she can put all her time and energy into being with Scott and their girls. She has little daily goals, like doing exercise despite her exhaustion. But her main goal is to see Isobel join her big sister at primary school.

“Since my breast cancer diagnosis, I’ve lived in the moment. But you have to plan for the future with kids. Breast cancer clinical trials are my hope I might be able to make some bigger plans one day.”

There are many women like Kristy living with metastatic breast cancer, who need more treatment options so that they can live longer and live well.
