Cancer is one of the leading causes of death in Australia. Every year, more than 123,000 Australians are diagnosed. We all know someone who is struggling with it or has lost a loved one to it. Maybe you lost someone too.
This October, Whizz takes a stand against the most common cancer in Australian women: breast cancer.
One in 8 women are at risk of developing it before their 75th birthday.
Every two hours, someone is diagnosed with it.
Every day, 7 Australian women die from it.
Join us in the race for the cure. Whizz is donating $1 from every clean to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. The NBCF is an organisation dedicated to research, prevention and treatment of breast cancer. Their goal is to achieve Zero Deaths from Breast cancer by 2030.
So why is a cleaning company supporting breast cancer research? “We always say that our ultimate goal is for our customers to walk into their house and feel amazing. But we know that no matter how clean your house is, it’s your family that really makes it a home,” says Mark Bernberg, CEO of Whizztechnologies. “Breast cancer tears apart families. It affects mothers, wives, daughters, sisters. It affects anyone who cares about them.”
If you’d like to join Whizz in our Breast Cancer Awareness campaign, here are three ways to help.
Donate to breast cancer research
Whizz automatically sends $1 from cleans booked from October 1 to October 31, 2015 to NBCF. If you would like to give more, you can donate at the NBCF fundraising page created by our marketing manager, Amandine Plas, for Whizz customers. Let’s clean cancer out of Australia!
