About Avon's Breast Cancer Crusade
The Avon Breast Cancer Crusade was launched in Australia in 1996 to raise funds for and increase awareness of breast cancer. Today, the Crusade covers over 50 Avon countries across the world. Globally and locally we are working together, and are proud to say that Australia and New Zealand has raised over $10M from the sale of Pink Ribbon products thanks to the efforts of its many dedicated Sales Representatives and supportive Customers.
Why support breast cancer?
Breast cancer is the most common cancer among Australian women.
Around 1 in 10 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer during their lifetime, and more than 30 women are diagnosed with breast cancer each day.
- Most women diagnosed with breast cancer do not have a family history of the disease, which is why early detection through mammographic screening is very important.
Where do our funds go?
Avon donates the funds raised to two organisations; the Australia and New Zealand Breast Cancer Trials Group (ANZBCTG), “which conducts a national breast cancer clinical trials research program for the treatment, prevention and cure of breast cancer; and the YWCA Encore Program, which provides community support, through exercise and counselling, to women who have had breast cancer surgery.
