Around 48 Australian women will be diagnosed with gynaecological or breast cancer every day.
This October thousands of women will be organising a Girl's Night In to show support for nearly 17,500 mothers, sisters, aunts, daughters and grandmothers affected by these cancers each year.
You can get involved by planning a night of fun with the girls by picking out your favourite DVDs and making some popcorn for a movie marathon, setting up a fancy dinner or hosting a cocktail party.
Instead of spending money at the cinemas or out at a restaurant, you can donate that money toward a good cause, helping Australian women with cancer.
"Girls Night In is a great way to raise important cancer awareness and funding for all women’s cancers while having a fun night in with your girlfriends," said Cancer Council Australia’s chief executive officer Professor Ian Olver.
"Many of us have been touched by cancer in some way. Supporting this event means you will be making a profound difference to the thousands of women affected by cancer each year, through increased research, prevention, and the support services we provide throughout Australia."
If you want to make sure you and your family have the appropriate treatment and care then consider getting set up with Australian health insurance.
Comparing health insurance plans will help you to find the best suited plan for you and your loved ones needs.
