Why everyone wears their Pink Hope lipstick on Friday 16th September… and has a life changing conversation

Back in 2012, breast and ovarian cancer awareness charity Pink Hope started Bright Pink Lipstick Day as a way to raise awareness and start the conversation around hereditary cancers. At present breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australia with an estimated 1 in 7 women being diagnosed in their lifetime. However, almost half of all Australians are unaware if cancer is a hereditary risk in their family and with 10% of cancers being hereditary, that is a stat that needs to change.

The 10th anniversary of Bright Pink Lipstick Day will be taking place on Friday 16th September 2022. Everyone is encouraged to wear your brightest lipstick which you can also purchase from the Pink Hope charity, facilitate a conversation and fundraise if you wish to. Pink Hope do some vital work helping women who are affected by breast and ovarian cancer so all funds go towards the work that they do.

Here is a link to purchase Pink Hope’s all natural vegan lipstick. All money goes back to the work that they do. So #daretoshare to save lives this September and lets restart this very important conversation
