I'm taking part in the Pink Ribbon Breakfast campaign this year to help support Breast Cancer Foundation NZ's vital work. The money raised will be used to fund research projects and medical grants to help improve survivorship, as well as support patients and their families during treatment and recovery.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer for Kiwi women and the third most common cancer overall

It affects one in nine New Zealand women over their lifetime.

About 70% - 75% of women who are diagnosed with breast cancer and about 80% of women who die from it are aged 50 years or older. Some women are at greater risk of breast cancer because there is a history of close family members having the disease. However, most women who develop breast cancer have no relatives with the disease. Even among women who do have relatives with breast cancer, most will never develop it. (Ministry of Health 2015)

While it is less common, young women can get breast cancer too. 6% of breast cancer in New Zealand occurs under the age of 40 years. Although it is uncommon, men also get breast cancer. About 25 men are diagnosed in New Zealand each year.

Nine New Zealand women, on average, will hear the news today that they have breast cancer.

Overall, 80% of people with breast cancer survive 10 years or more (92% if detected on a screening mammogram) but tragically, more than 650 women die of the disease every year.

Donate today to help make zero deaths from breast cancer a reality.
