Since retiring from politics in 2003 she has successfully carved out a career in government relations, as a corporate advisor, event speaker, leadership mentor and media commentator. Just to name a few.

We need your help to raise funds for Gynaecological Cancers!

  

The Eggtober Foundation hopes you will join in the fun and help a very worthy cause.

  

Gynaecological Cancers have a low public profile compared to other types of cancers and lag far behind for public awareness, prevention/control, public funding and private donation. Yet Gynaecological Cancers have very grim statistics. The five-year survival rate experienced by females diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 1999-2003 in NSW was 42% compared with 88% for female breast cancer. Known as the silent killer most ovarian cancers are not detected until an advanced stage, when prognosis is poor, hence the low survival rate.

  

The Eggtober Foundation aims to help improve survival rates by;

• Improving service delivery in the detection and treatment of Gynaecological Cancer, through the purchase of equipment and supplies thus assisting both Doctors and Patients in Australia,

• Funding research into Gynaecological Cancer,

• Promoting public awareness of Gynaecological Cancers.
