CITY FIELD OF
Saturday Feb 29 – Saturday March 7
Pink Meets Teal is a community of women who want to see the five-year survival rate of just 46% for ovarian cancer reach the phenomenal 91% survival rate for breast cancer.
Ovarian cancer takes the lives of 1,000 Australian women every year but is one of the most under-funded cancers receiving four times LESS than breast cancer.
Pink Meets Teal acknowledges and applauds the tremendous outcomes in the fight against breast cancer and believe that with similar commitment and resources we can achieve the same success for ovarian cancer.
We call on all women, especially breast cancer survivors, to help us in this challenge by demanding funding fairness for ovarian cancer.
We call on governments and donors to look below the waist when it comes to cancer funding and give researchers the money they need to come up with a screening test, clinical trials and better treatment options for ovarian cancer.
Who are the Makers X Traders?
We’re a group that began to meet over coffee to share our journeys, our aspirations and how we were faring in our rapidly evolving city.
Stories of community engagement, sustainable supply practices and the fostering of creative communities we found uplifting and fortifying in challenging times.
Ideas quickly began to emerge for projects that we could tackle as a group that were beyond us as individual businesses.
We are proud to be part of a city we believe has an incredibly creative DNA and would love to invite you become a member of our association.
