Every Pink Ribbon Breakfast helps save another life.

Research doesn't just change statistics, it helps save lives. Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among women in Australia. Twenty years ago 30% of women diagnosed with the disease lost their battle. Today through research, that percentage has halved. Pink Ribbon Breakfasts help fund this vital research - and save lives.

Hynda Feldman's story

At 52 years old, Hynda was living life to the max. Busy with her work as a carer for her grandson, volunteer work, her big family and a packed social life, it was fortunate that Hynda found time for her regular mammogram in 2011. That mammogram found early stage breast cancer. And Hynda's certain it saved her life. "Without medical research I probably would not have been diagnosed for at least five years when a probable lump would have been found," she says. "If that was the case, my journey would have taken a quite different path, of this I am certain." Hynda's journey from diagnosis to completing her treatment took just three months. It's a true success story, but it wasn't without its triumphant highs and soul-searching lows.

Anni Franklin-Wood's story

Courageous, joyful, loving. Wife, mother, friend. They're all words that describe Anni, yet they don't capture the beauty of her spirit, or the loss felt by her loved ones when she was taken from them after a brave seven-year battle with breast cancer.

Anni was a vibrant woman who began her career as a dancer, before marrying her beloved husband Mark. They soon welcomed Laura, who was just five when Anni was diagnosed with breast cancer. Anni's initial treatment was successful, and she had several years remission before secondary cancer was discovered.

A passionate supporter of NBCF - she even had a Pink Ribbon tattooed on her right arm - Anni said in 2006: "It is only through funding research that we are going to find a cure for this terrible disease." Today Mark and Laura work with NBCF in the hope that no family has to suffer the heartache that they've been through.

Kerri-Anne Kennerley's story

Kerri-Anne Kennerley is one of Australia's most-loved television personalities. Her trademark charm and bubbly personality have endeared her to audiences since she first appeared on the small screen at the tender age of just 13. With a long career and a string of successful TV shows to her credit, Kerri-Anne is nothing short of an Australian icon.

In 2012 Kerri-Anne was enjoying a wonderful period in her life. She was part of a top-rating TV show and she'd never felt better– until she was diagnosed with breast cancer. "I've been blessed with a wonderful family and a great husband, and most importantly fabulous health all my life," says Kerri-Anne. "So when I was diagnosed with breast cancer it was a shock, because I've really never, ever been sick before."

After her initial fears, Kerri-Anne took on breast cancer the same way she's tackled every obstacle in her life– with clear-eyed determination and a great big smile.

Karen Allen's story

Karen is a testament to knowing your own body and trusting your instincts. After finding a lump in her breast Karen knew something was up. After an agonising wait, her doctor confirmed her worst fears. "Thirteen years ago when I was diagnosed things were so different to how they are now," she says. "You can get results back within a 24/48-hour period now. Back then I had to wait ten long, long, long days." Karen travelled a long road through treatment and faced many demons but she knows what saved her life. "Without research I wouldn't be alive today," she says. "I know I wouldn't." Karen's quiet bravery is an inspiration and her survival a triumph against the odds.

Gay Black's story

You'll never meet a more vibrant grandmother than Gay. She's the life and soul of the party– with a laugh and a joke for everyone, no matter your age. With a loving husband and a cherished life together, it came as a real shock for Gay to discover a stain on her nightdress that turned out to be evidence of breast cancer. She took action quickly, was diagnosed and underwent radiotherapy treatments. "It's every day for six weeks but there's a deadline and once you get to the light at the end of the tunnel then it's all over," she says. "That positive attitude kept me going." When she finally received the all-clear she skipped home through the park and hasn't stopped smiling since.

Paulina White's story

Just when Paulina thought everything was right, it went wrong. At 32 she was a fit, healthy, active young Mum looking after her two-year-old son and newborn baby. When her doctor discovered a lump in her breast at a routine post-natal check up "it completely rocked my world," she says. "When I heard the diagnosis I felt like the floor had fallen out from under me. It felt very surreal, a nightmare feeling." Since her successful treatment, Paulina has joined with NBCF to tell her story- because she knows that if a healthy young woman like her can be affected by breast cancer, anyone can.
