About Avon's Breast Cancer Crusade
The Avon Breast Cancer Crusade was launched in Australia and New Zealand in 1996 to raise funds for and increase awareness of breast cancer. Today, the Crusade covers over 50 Avon countries across the world. Globally and locally we are working together, and are proud to say that Australia and New Zealand have raised over $10M from the sale of Pink Ribbon products thanks to the efforts of its many dedicated Sales Representatives and supportive Customers.
Why support breast cancer?
Breast cancer is the most common cancer among New Zealand women.
Around 1 in 10 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer during their lifetime, and more than 30 women are diagnosed with breast cancer each day.
- Most women diagnosed with breast cancer do not have a family history of the disease, which is why early detection through mammographic screening is very important.
Where do our funds go?The Vision of the Foundation is:
Avon donates its fund to the New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation, a charitable trust that aims to educate all women about breast cancer and the importance of early detection while working towards the goal of complete control of the disease.
To reduce mortality from breast cancer by providing women with accurate, up to date information and education and by promoting access, in the appropriate age groups, to quality mammography and breast care for the women of New Zealand.
