Breast Cancer Trials is a unique collaboration of researchers, trial participants and our valued supporters working together to save and improve lives.
Get together with your family, friends and colleagues, and together let’s stop breast cancer threatening lives, hopes and dreams of all those affected by breast cancer.
Breast cancer has now become the most commonly diagnosed cancer worldwide, with around 2.3 million people diagnosed with the disease globally each year.
In Australia, the risk of a woman being diagnosed with breast cancer by the age of 85 is
8 women die every day. 55 are diagnosed every day.
In New Zealand, the risk of a woman being diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime is
670 people die each year. 9 are diagnosed every day.
It is through your donations that our clinical trials research is possible. Through your support, our research has successfully found, and continues to explore, better treatments for people affected by breast cancer. This includes:
Louise was 65 when she was diagnosed with an early stage hormone sensitive breast cancer.
“I received the letter that every woman fears – it was a recall to have further tests following an abnormal result on my routine screening mammogram. When further tests showed I had breast cancer, my husband and I cried. We talked about the plans we had for our future.”
The majority of women diagnosed with breast cancer today will be in their 60s. And just like Louise, they have worked hard and planned for their retirement and the precious time with family and friends. But breast cancer can threaten life-plans and put dreams for the future on hold. Your breast cancer donation can help change this.
