October is international breast cancer awareness month. Share your story to help more Kiwis understand this deadly disease.

According to the New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation, breast cancer is the most common cancer among Kiwi women, affecting one in nine.

Around 650 women still die from the disease every year, although most will survive five years or longer if the cancer is detected early enough. 

It's not just women it affects. Men can also get breast cancer, although it is not as common.   

We want to hear how breast cancer has affected your life.

Have you survived breast cancer or are you currently undergoing treatment? Maybe you've supported family or friends through their diagnosis.

What have been the most valuable things you've learnt during this time?

Help raise awareness of the impact breast cancer has on Kiwi lives by sharing your story. Just click the green button to get started.
