Innisfail Breast Cancer Support Group Cent Sale on now

8/October/2021
Some of the fantastic prizes up for grabs at the IBCSG Cent Sale being held this month at the Commonwealth Bank Innisfail.

INNISFAIL Breast Cancer Support Group’s sixth annual Cent Sale started at the Commonwealth Bank’s Innisfail branch on Tuesday and will run until the end of the month. 

 

This event is held in October, which is Australia’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month. 

 

There has been fantastic support from local businesses and supporters, which means there are sixty amazing prizes up for grabs, including a raffle with vouchers valued at over $800.

 

Tickets prices are $2 for one sheet, $5 for three sheets, and ten sheets for $10, which are available at the Commonwealth Bank, Innisfail until the ‘Paint the Town Pink ‘ Day on Friday, October 29. 

 

All businesses are invited to dress up their shop windows during the month and to ‘pink up’ on October 29 to support the 20,030 Australians expected to be diagnosed with breast cancer in 2021.

 

A wide range of IBSG, BCNA, and associated breast merchandise are also on sale.

 

Breast cancer remains the most common cancer among Australian women (excluding non-melanoma skin cancer). 

 

Early detection is the key, and more ladies are realising the importance of breast screening every two years, as early intervention means higher survival rates. 

 

Any ladies with a family history of breast cancer are encouraged to start screening at the age of forty, while others will be invited from the electoral role to start screening when they turn fifty.

 

Survival rates continue to improve in Australia, with eighty-nine out of every one hundred women diagnosed with invasive breast cancer now living five or more years beyond diagnosis.

 

Funds raised from this event will allow IBCSG to provide ongoing assistance to breast cancer patients in the Far North Queensland region.
