WOMEN’S HEALTH

Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM) takes place every October. The aim of the BCAM is to shine a light on the devastating impact breast cancer has on thousands of Australians each day.
Almost 20,000 Australians will be diagnosed with the disease this year alone. That equates to 55 Australians every day. And nearly 3000 Australians will lose their lives to breast cancer this year. That’s someone’s mother, sister, friend or family member whose life has been tragically cut short because of the disease.
PWA member, Dr Yvette Mellam has prepared a great guide for you to ‘Get the Breast Facts’ – click here
