A cause close to our hearts…
Youngblood founder & President Pauline Youngblood was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009 & thankfully, early detection was the key to her recovery. Unfortunately, it is more than likely that someone you know or love has been affected in some way by this disease and that’s why supporting October Breast Cancer Awareness Month is so close to our hearts and those of many Australians.
Why initiatives like Breast Cancer Awareness Month are so important to the cause
It’s more than just awareness – it’s the life-saving results that come with it. Through initiatives like Breast Cancer Awareness Month & foundations such as [insert foundation name], we are able to see progress towards the prevention, early-detection and curing of breast cancer. For example, the chance of surviving at least five years post diagnosis has increased from 74% in 1986-1990 to 90% in 2011-2015 – with the number of positive outcomes like this one continuing to grow each year.
