Gynaecological Cancer Awareness Month
September 1 - September 30
Every year in Australia more than 6,500 women will be diagnosed with a gynaecological cancer and around 2,000 will die. WomenCan is the fundraising arm of the peak research organisation – Australia New Zealand Gynaecological Oncology Group (ANZGOG). During September the ‘Save The Box’ campaign raises awareness for cancer research. Many women are uncomfortable talking about their gynaecological parts. However, by understanding, taking early action and through research we improve life for women now and in the future.
