Breast Cancer Awareness

October is Female Cancer awareness month or Pink Ribbon MONTH. We are running a charity event in our shopping center Jackson Court. Breast cancer is the most common female cancer which affects nearly 14,000 Australian women a year. This accounts for almost one third of all female cancer diagnosis. The age most at risk is those over 50 which accounts for  75% of all cancer diagnosis. If you have had a history of breast cancer in the family, this increases the chances of developing the disease. 

Here are some important facts:
