Meet Kristy and her daughter Eden.
Kristy first learned she had breast cancer the day before her 39th birthday.
“I had been aware of a hardened part in my left breast, and I put off doing anything about it, I thought it’d be nothing.” Kristy said.
After undergoing an ultrasound and biopsies, Kristy was told that she had Stage 2 HER2 Triple Positive breast cancer after a 4cm tumour was found, as well as some lymph node involvement.
Kristy is now considered cancer free. Investing in research is our best bet in ensuring everyone will one day survive a breast cancer diagnosis which is why your support is so vital.
This year, it's anticipated that 206 men and 20,434 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in Australia. Sadly, we lose 3,000 loved ones each year.
You can help reduce these numbers by making a donation to make sure kids like Eden don't lose their Mum.
