Statistics from the Breast Cancer Foundation of Australia tell us that in 2019 alone there will be an estimated 19,535 new cases of breast cancer detected and one in eight women will be diagnosed with this insidious disease before they reach the age of 85. 

Whether you have been diagnosed yourself or know someone who has, it’s the people behind the statistics that matter; the stories of how families, friends, carers and advocates unite to fight for them to live another day. Bree Ambry, left, and Malene Sorensen are prime examples of this. 

Bree explains: “Malene and I have been friends since our daughters Isabella and Phoebe were at kinder together, and breast cancer has always been a cause that I have supported. We have participated in the Mother’s Day Classic for the last three years and our girls get dressed up in bright pink and come along too. I had no idea that Malene’s mum, who fought through the disease 15 years ago and is still with us today, had been diagnosed with breast cancer before my mum was diagnosed. My mum wasn’t so lucky. She was diagnosed with terminal breast cancer two years ago and told she only had months to live. She lost her fight early this year. We spent last Christmas in Frankston Hospital having Christmas lunch. The whole experience was devastating. Isabella was only five when Mum got sick and I found it very hard to come to terms with the fact that I was going to be motherless somewhere in between 32 and 35 years of age. It was also very difficult watching my daughter go through the whole process. Can you imagine hearing your daughter say, ‘I know Nana is going to die’?” 

So, what to do? Never forget and keep supporting the cause. Bree and Malene are holding their second breast cancer fundraiser at Barmah Park Vineyard on November 9 in their quest to increase awareness. Last year they raised more than $1000 in support of the National Breast Cancer Foundation and this year’s funds will go to Breast Cancer Network Australia. Bree continues: “All services have been donated and every cent goes to the Cancer Network, apart from paying for the food. There’ll be a raffle, a silent auction and Fashion in the Vines, plus personal stories from women who have been touched by the disease in one way or another.” 

Log on to www.twotravellingplanners.com/breast-cancer-fundraising-2/ or go to Facebook for more information and to purchase a ticket in support of those who have already been diagnosed with cancer and those unfortunately to come. Bree and Malene purchase their own tickets and you should too. From woman to woman to man, breast cancer often arrives without any warning. So remember: keep checking and keep on fighting.
