Supporting Breast Cancer Awareness Month – Breast Cancer Foundation NZ

Giving back is about being able to better the lives of the people around you. So, when asked to make her charity of choice, Donna Marshall was drawn to the Breast Cancer Foundation NZ. Breast Cancer is a cause close to her heart as she is surrounded by so many wonderful women that have positively impacted her life. Donna is our Customer Service Team Leader and she is always willing to go out of her way to make customers happy, so it’s fitting that she wants to help others in need. Donating to this cause assists in further research and support for those undergoing diagnosis or treatment.

‘Towards zero deaths’

Breast Cancer Foundation NZ’s vision is zero deaths from breast cancer. They believe that by pushing for new frontiers in early detection, treatment and support, they can turn their vision into reality. Breast cancer is still the most common cancer for women in New Zealand. Every year, around 3,300 Kiwis are told they have breast cancer, and each year, 650 women die from breast cancer.

Every year, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. This year, Breast Cancer Foundation NZ’s annual Pink Ribbon Appeal and Pink Ribbon Walk were cancelled due to Covid-19. We still wanted to do our bit by helping them make their dream a reality. Getting involved in this awesome initiative helps keep breast cancer research, education and patient support programs running.
