So where was I during my adventure?

Remember the line from the Lord of the Rings….”Not all who wander are lost”? Well, that was me. I wasn’t lost, I was just wandering.

It all started when I went outside for some fresh air. I know I’m not supposed to go outside without Diane or Scott but I was bored. Plus, I didn’t think it would be a problem. (Don’t tell Scott but I do that a lot when they are off at a funeral.)

Who Do You Wear Pink For?

Sydney Breast CancerOctober is a month that we focus our awareness on a cancer that has probably impacted someone you know. Did you know that in 2017, it is estimated that 16,084 new cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed in Australia (150 males and 15,934 females).

In 2017, it is estimated that the age-standardised incidence rate will be 59 cases per 100,000 persons (1.1 for males and 115 for females).

It is estimated that it will become the 3rd most commonly diagnosed cancer in 2017.

In 2017, it is estimated that the risk of an individual being diagnosed with breast cancer by their 85th birthday will be 1 in 16 (1 in 719 males and 1 in 8 females).

In 2017, it is expected that the incidence rate of breast cancer will increase with age until age group 65–69. It will then decrease for age group 70–79 before increasing for individuals aged 80+

Join us in honouring those who have fought, or are fighting breast cancer in Australia. So we ask, who do you wear pink for?
