National Breast Cancer Foundation Cocktail Reception

4 May 2014

Carol Renouf is president of the NBCF and as such is at the helm of an organisation that’s been funding research into the prevention and cure of breast cancer to the tune of $105 million for 20 years.

With an aspirational goal of zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030, there have been 370 Australian-based researchers finding new and improved treatments, better and innovative therapies and cutting edge technology from this funding. We have to believe they’ll be successful.

Renouf was in Canberra as guest of Bob and Anna Prosser – Bob is on the board of the NBCF – and a cocktail party to welcome her was attended by local supporters of the annual glam Pink Dinner for NBCF, with many of the committee headed by Dorothy Service attending. 

But as the many and varied pink hues identify our support for positives that come from us all participating in the before, during and after aspects of breast cancer research, it won't be the colour of the cause that will rid us of the scourge but hard slog research and women approaching a heartbreaking diagnosis with a realistic attitude and the best treatment currently available.
