Adenbrook Homes are currently on a mission to raise awareness and much needed funds for breast cancer research. With 53 Australian’s diagnosed every day, breast cancer is the most diagnosed cancer in Australia and the Adenbrook Homes team want to help find a cure. Having personally been impacted by breast cancer the cause is close to the heart of the Adenbrook team, motivating their goal to raise at least $12,000 throughout the year in support of this great cause.
As a business we always focus on how we can engage with the community and help those around us. When you consider how many lives are impacted by breast cancer every year, it was an easy decision for us to immerse ourselves in supporting the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
The National Breast Cancer Foundation opened their doors in 1994 and has since raised over $181 million to fund an incredible 557 breast cancer research projects across Australia. This has led to the development of new treatment outcomes, diagnostic tools and approaches to improve the quality of life of those affected by breast cancer. The NBCF is 100% community funded with no government support, so the Adenbrook Homes team understand that we need to come together to continue to fund this research if we are going to achieve the goal of zero deaths.
While the incidence of breast cancer has increased in recent years, the 5-year survival rate has improved to 91% over the last 25 years and much of this progress is thanks largely due to research. The more Australians that donate to research, the more likely we are of achieving the goal of zero breast cancer deaths by 2030. We aim to not only help raise funds but also increase awareness.
