Adenbrook Homes Mid North Coast is currently on a mission to raise awareness and much needed funds for breast cancer research.
With 50 women diagnosed every day, breast cancer is the most diagnosed cancer in Australia and the Adenbrook Homes team want to help find a cure.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
The cause is close to the heart of the Adenbrook team and their efforts to raise $10,000 to support research and awareness.
"We are always focused 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 this fundraiser," business owner, Matt Morris said.
The Adenbrook Homes Mid North Coast team called on their past clients for support to raise the much-needed funds for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
The team requested past clients display a sign promoting the partnership between Adenbrook Homes and the National Breast Cancer Foundation at the front of their property. For every sign, they donated $50.
Every sign displayed throughout August and September brought the team closer to their goal of $10,000.
The National Breast Cancer Foundation opened its doors in 1994 and has since raised over $171 million to fund an incredible 534 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 per cent community funded with no government support, so the Adenbrook Homes team understand the community must come together to continue to fund this research if we are going to achieve
While the incidence of breast cancer has increased in recent years, the five-year survival rate has increased to 91 per cent over the last 25 years and much of this progress is thanks largely due to research.
