2019 Australian Women’s Health Diary
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.
