Teal Ribbon Day, is a day to raise awareness for Ovarian Cancer.
The Hunter Care Group team dedicated some time to sit down and discuss its impact on women in our community, some of the statistics are quite concerning!
– 3 Australian women lose their battle daily
– 4 Australian women get diagnosed every day within Australia.
– The overall 5-year survival rate for women diagnosed with ovarian cancer is only 46%.
– Breast Cancer more commonly known, has an overall 5-year survival rate of 91%
Erica, one of our amazing staff members dedicated her time to providing some baked goods and sharing her personal insight and stories on the matter.
Great work Erica, and thank you for your contributions this morning
