Supporting Breast Cancer Awareness Month – Breast Cancer Foundation NZ
29 October 2021
‘Towards zero deaths’
Breast Cancer Foundation NZ’s vision is zero deaths from breast cancer. They believe that by pushing for new frontiers in early detection, treatment and support, they can turn their vision into reality. Breast cancer is still the most common cancer for women in New Zealand. Every year, around 3,300 Kiwis are told they have breast cancer, and each year, 650 women die from breast cancer.

Every year, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. This year, Breast Cancer Foundation NZ’s annual Pink Ribbon Appeal and Pink Ribbon Walk were cancelled due to Covid-19. We still wanted to do our bit by helping them make their dream a reality. Getting involved in this awesome initiative helps keep breast cancer research, education and patient support programs running.
