Kerikeri, Bay of Islands
I'm taking part in the Pink Ribbon Breakfast campaign this year to help support Breast Cancer Foundation NZ''s vital work. Nine women are diagnosed with breast cancer every day.
BCFNZ provide counselling, rehabilitation programmes, an online support community and a helpline for those affected.
The money raised will be used to fund research projects and medical grants to help improve survivor-ship, as well as support patients and their families during treatment and recovery. To date, BCFNZ has distributed over $4.6 million over New Zealand for breast cancer research and medical grants, developing new drugs and improving existing treatment methods.Thousands of lives have been saved due to education about breast cancer signs and symptoms, advances in treatment and the introduction of NZ's mammogram screening programme, enabling earlier diagnosis.
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page and thank you if you donated! :)
