October is Australia’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and whether you’ve been personally touched by the disease or not, this wonderful campaign gives each and every one of us an opportunity to focus our attention on breast cancer, its impact on those affected, and what we can do to help.
According to Cancer Australia, “breast cancer remains the most common cancer among Australian women (excluding non-melanoma skin cancer). Survival rates continue to improve in Australia with 89 out of every 100 women diagnosed with invasive breast cancer now surviving five or more years beyond diagnosis.”
Aside from donating, there are plenty of ways you can get involved as a spa or clinic owner, with several professional brands donating much-needed funds from the sale of limited-edition breast cancer awareness products. You may in fact be using some of these ranges already – just keep doing what you’re doing and you will be contributing to a most worthy cause!
