Unite In Pink

Breast cancer.

It is a disease we are all affected by. Whether it is ourselves, our mothers, sisters, grandmothers, aunties, nieces, wives, partners, friends or work colleagues, the diagnosis of breast cancer has a devastating impact on us all.

No woman should have to experience this.

It’s estimated that in 1 in 8 Australian women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime.

However there is good news. Relative survival rates after diagnosis of breast cancer in women have increased in recent years.

At First National, we are dedicated in doing our part to raise awareness and funds to assist the Cancer Council in minimising the threat of breast cancer through successful prevention, best treatment, support and world-class cancer research. We will be donating $100 from every property sold towards this.

Early detection is our best defence, we urge you to regularly check your breasts once a month and go for screenings.

Although the majority of Australians diagnosed with breast cancer are women, many people are surprised to learn that men can develop breast cancer too. Breast cancer in men is rare, accounting for less than 1% of all cancers in men, and less than 1% of all breast cancers.

We also have a selection of pink ribbon merchandise including teddy bears, badges, ribbons, key rings, pens and more available to purchase at our office at 35 Fletcher Street, Byron Bay.
