The Mother’s Day Classic celebrates the lives of all women this International Women’s Day

March 9, 2020 Charity No Comments

Meet some of our community ambassadors who walk or run to help raise funds and awareness for breast cancer research

International Women’s Day represents an opportunity to celebrate the global achievements of all women and the collective call to action for greater equality and raising awareness of women’s issues.

This International Women’s Day, the 2020 Mother’s Day Classic is celebrating all women touched by breast cancer and recognising those women with the courage and determination to unite, network and mobilise for meaningful change.

There are so many extraordinary women within the Mother’s Day Classic community that have been touched by breast cancer in one way or another – mums, daughters, aunts, sisters and friends.

One in seven women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime

By participating in the Mother’s Day Classic, you will be supporting the 53 women who are diagnosed with breast cancer every day. Now is the time to show your support in making Mother’s Day an event that isn’t just about celebrating mum, but about making a real difference.

8 women lose their life to breast cancer every day in Australia.

Our Community Ambassadors are an inspiring and generous group of people. Not only do they fundraise for the Mother’s Day Classic but they kindly share their personal stories with the greater community. Many of them are either going through breast cancer or remembering a loved one lost and often, when they could be forgiven for thinking of themselves, they think of others.

Together we can stop breast cancer

Meet our Ambassadors from around the country–

Jessica Braude, Sydney, NSWIn 2017 having just turned 30, Jessica was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer (TNBC).

Jessica credits her survival with early detection due to choosing the BRCA1 gene testing encouraged by the publicity surrounding Angelina Jolie. Since surviving gruelling chemotherapy treatment, she has been heavily involved with fundraising events for cancer research and keen to raise awareness around the prevalence of aggressive cancers in young women. Jessica believes there are misconceptions about TNBC with many people not aware that rates of survival are very low for the type of cancer she was diagnosed with.

“There is a dark side to this disease which is largely unknown to most people and that’s why it is so important to support research to find a targeted treatment for triple negative breast cancer. We need to improve outcomes for women diagnosed with this devastating and largely misunderstood form of the disease.”
