It’s National Breast Cancer Awareness Month – how are you showing your support? Eight women die in Australia from breast cancer every day. Show your support by supporting these awesome home-grown brands donating funds this month – shopping and saving lives? We dig that…

The death of award-winning, journo Rebecca Wilson, from breast cancer last week shocked the media landscape, and brought home how real this insidious disease is. Breast cancer doesn’t discriminate on age, ethnicity or even gender, with 150 Aussie men estimated to receive a breast cancer diagnosis this year.

The National Breast Cancer Foundation (NCBF) goal is to attain ZERO deaths from breast cancer by 2030. That’s right, by the time our Preppies are celebrating their 21st birthdays, the NCBF wants deaths from breast cancer to be a thing of the past. How can you help? Throw your support – and some moolah – behind these brilliant Australian products this month. Part of your purchase price contributes to vital research into breast cancer, and support for women and their families battling this disease.
