2019 Aus­tralian Women’s Health Di­ary

Money Magazine Australia - - THIS MONTH - NI­COLA FIELD

What is it? This is the gift that saves lives – ev­ery dol­lar raised from the sale of the di­ary helps to fund clin­i­cal tri­als on breast can­cer. Where your money goes: The di­ary has been around since 1999 and has raised $14.3 mil­lion for the re­search group Breast Can­cer Tri­als, a team of world-lead­ing doc­tors and re­searchers based in Aus­tralia and New Zealand. The funds are much needed. Fifty women are di­ag­nosed with breast can­cer ev­ery day, and it re­mains the fourth lead­ing cause of can­cer death in Aus­tralia. Breast Can­cer Tri­als has achieved some ex­cep­tional re­search, prov­ing, for ex­am­ple, that the drug Tamox­ifen re­duces rates by nearly a third among women with a high risk of de­vel­op­ing breast can­cer.

The di­ary comes packed with health tips for per­sonal well­be­ing plus daily re­minders of ways to main­tain your own good health. It also in­cludes a bud­get plan­ner to keep your fi­nances in great shape.

How to do­nate: The di­ary is avail­able from newsagents and Wool­worths super­mar­kets, or you can or­der your copy di­rect from Breast Can­cer Tri­als by phon­ing 1800 423 444. Priced at $18.95, it’s an ideal Christ­mas gift.
