55 WOMEN ARE DIAGNOSED EACH DAY IN AUSTRALIA. YOUR DONATION WILL HELP FUND BREAST CANCER RESEARCH AND CHANGE THE FUTURE FOR ALL THOSE DIAGNOSED.
At 33 years old, with two young children, Tarryn found a lump in her breast. Tarryn has been through a lot since her breast cancer diagnosis in November 2020.
She’s had a mastectomy, four cycles of chemotherapy and endured 28 sessions of radiotherapy. Chemotherapy left her with heart complications that require medication, and she has undergone heart surgery as a consequence.
But the hardest part of her journey has been the thought of not being there for her kids.
Currently, predicting the likelihood of early-stage breast cancer spread or relapse is very difficult – and leaves women like Tarryn with an uncertain future. Thankfully, NBCF-funded researcher, Associate Professor Belinda Parker is working hard towards a solution to predict the risks of breast cancer spread and relapse.
Since NBCF started funding research in 1994, the five-year breast cancer survival rate has improved from 76% to 91% and rising thanks largely to research. Help us reach our goal of Zero Deaths from breast cancer by 2030.
Make a Christmas Donation to NBCF, to help fund groundbreaking breast cancer research that will keep women like Tarryn, and their families from going through the darkest of times and help provide a brighter future to celebrate many more Christmas’ to come.
