Every year 14,000 Australian women are diagnosed with breast cancer. Yesterday we learned that much loved television personality Kerri-Anne Kennerley was one of them.
Our thoughts are with Kerri-Anne and all other newly diagnosed women as they start this difficult journey.
Unsurprisingly, news of Kerri-Anne's diagnosis has sparked a flurry of media attention on breast cancer. Following Kerri-Anne's announcement, BCNA CEO Maxine Morand was approached by a number of national media outlets and provided comment on the news.
New research from Cancer Research UK could revolutionise the way women with breast cancer are diagnosed and treated in the future, and lead to the development of new targeted treatments.
For more information on the reserach is available in the BCNA News.
