Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer diagnosed in Australian women. The most recent statistics from the Cancer Council of Australia reveals that approximately 15 thousand women receive a breast cancer diagnosis annually. By the age of 85, women have a 1 in 8 chance of being treated for breast cancer. This makes it a considerable issue for the women of the North Shore, Sydney and therefore an important focus for Elleren Lingerie. In particular, Elleren Lingerie is passionate meeting the needs of women recovering post breast cancer treatment.
The prognosis for breast cancer patients is continually improving: while unfortunately almost 3 thousand Australian women will die each year from breast cancer, 96% of patients will survive past 5 years if the cancer is restricted to the breast tissue. For survivors, considerable challenges remain post breast cancer. Many will face breast reconstruction and recovery, chemotherapy or radiotherapy. Some will require prostheses, and all will have special requirements for fitting bras. Elleren Lingerie is the first fitter on the North Shore, Sydney to have expertise in post breast cancer and mastectomy fitting. Visit our Facebook site or come in store today for more information.
