Each year in Australia over 17,500 women are diagnosed with breast and gynaecological cancers. Survival rates are increasing due to earlier detection and better treatment but we still have a long way to go. Your support helps Cancer Council beat breast and gynaecological cancers through prevention programs, support services and world-class research.

Early detection is critical to increasing survival rates. Find out more about national screening programs, and ways to lower your cancer risk. Knowing about another person's personal experience of cancer can be a source of support and inspiration when you or someone you love is going through a cancer treatment.

Here, our inspirational Cancer Council Supporters share their stories. Find out more about national screening programs, and ways to lower your cancer risk.
