Celebrating International Women’s Day is a great opportunity to raise awareness of cancer and to encourage its prevention, detection, and treatment for all women – particularly women under 50.
“Breast cancer affects 1 in 7 women and is the 2nd leading cause of cancer death in females”
“23% of women diagnosed with breast cancer are under 50 years of age”
My not for profit foundation, the Australian Breast Care Centre‘s mission is to empower women to make informed decisions about their breast health. As founder of The Australian Breast Care Centre, I have devoted my life to saving women’s lives; I am also a representative of Royal Australasian College of Surgeons and Cancer Council Victoria. As a female surgeon, I am a minority in my field, with females representing only 12% of all surgeons in Australia and New Zealand.
