Hit99.5 throws its support behind breast cancer awareness
When you look at the figures, the rates of breast cancer in Australia is heartbreaking.
One in eight Australian women will be diagnosed before the age of 85.
With the help of community groups and their fundraising efforts, the long-term prognosis of many patients is on the improve.
Hit99.5 has thrown its support behind the cause, teaming up with Women’s Health Network to throw a ‘Welcome to Spring Party for the women of Sunraysia, who’re living with breast cancer.
Breakfast hosts Amy Hegedus and Dave Anderson reached out to the community and local businesses for donations with 100 per cent of the money raised going to Sunraysia Cancer Resources.
“The idea was to create a fun and supportive environment, allowing listeners to get active, get inspired and raised much-needed funds,” says Amy.
“We decided to throw a listener party where everyone was invited to come along, kick off their morning with a dance and donate what they could for women living with cancer in Sunraysia.”
