In the next 24 hours, 53 Australians will hear four terrifying words:
“You have breast cancer”.
Pause. Digest. Internalise…Now ACT.
We’ve said it before. But its never been more true. In the Village we are all connected. We take our care and responsibility for each other very seriously. And when it comes to standing up and being counted, our Villagers stand up. Monday? Tuesday? Sunday? ANY DAY!!! Our hearts (at least) don’t deep dive into Yoga Nidra because the working week is done.
On Sunday, 1 December 2019, five of the wonderful women from our Village joined thousands of Victorian women who walked 10 km as part of Carman’s Women’s Fun Run to raise critical funds to support Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA).
BCNA – the peak national organisation for Australians affected by breast cancer – works tirelessly to ensure that Australians living with breast cancer receive the very best support, information, treatment and care appropriate to their individual needs.
BCNA is a network of more than 120,000 members. More than 90 per cent of BCNA members have had a diagnosis of breast cancer, and the remaining members have had a personal experience through a family member or friend.
To anyone and everyone out there whose lives have been impacted by breast cancer; to their families and loved ones; to their medical and allied health teams; and to their communities, we salute you. You are all our heroes!!!
